And whats the advantage of using Adobe framemaker?

1. You then support Adobe instead of Bill Gates & Co – your choice between the two almost monopolies in this sector. You could also consider Star Office.

2. It has put pressure on Microsoft to improve MS Word.

AND you provide income for programmers (and perhaps writers?) in India because Adobe has offshored the FrameMaker work:

India Times (New Delhi), Nov. 28, 2002 -- Multi-National Companies Firms in Queue Up for India

... "Take the $1.6 billion graphics software maker Adobe, for instance. It started off its India development centres six years ago. Today, the company develops its globally best-selling software 'Framemaker' completely out of India, besides other cutting-edge research. The company has just moved into a $10-million, 370-engineer facility in Noida complete with tennis courts and a gym. And to top it all, the company is planning to increase its 150-strong staff strength by around 50% to 225 within the next six months."
