I use MS Word for my documentation. To some this may seem like the wrong
product to use and I have found some complications with it over the years,
but the one client I work with would prefer that I stay in Word. Reason?
Word is one of the classes they teach and they like to be able to tell the
students that the book was written in Word...kind of an example of what they
will be able to do at the end of class I suppose. I was just wondering what
software you use to do your writing in? Word... PageMaker...

Ah, yes, the bi-annual tool war is about to begin...

I use Word. Always have. My clients wanted it. I like using it. I've successfully created and maintained 1000+ page documents in Word (and no, I don't use MasterDocuments).

Bought FrameMaker years ago in anticipation of a contract that I didn't win. Installed in on the PC I was using then, ran though the tutorials, and uninstalled it a month later. Best thing about that purchase was that it came with a full version of Acrobat, which I do keep up-to-date.
