Besides the answers you get from the list, you may be able to find discussions
of this topic on the TECHWR-L Web site. I'd suggest searching the archives there
for depth and breadth of coverage.

I've used Word and FrameMaker and, although I never had to use Word extensively,
I much prefer Frame. You define styles, page layouts, etc. in Frame, and (for
the most part) Frame obeys. It doesn't try to guess what you want to do. It
might not seem as easy to learn at first, but once you've grasped some basic
concepts, you'll probably find it's easy to accomplish most tasks.

If you're the only one with Frame, but others have Acrobat (the full package,
not just Reader) you can have people review documents and make annotation using
Acrobat, but they can't screw up the original document. A definite plus!

I can't comment on Quark because I've never used it.

Good luck,
