If making documentation "flashy" means that people
will pick it up and actually READ what I write, then
it's got my full support.

I'm on the verge of buying ID or CS2 for my current
position, specifically to create a library of
relatively short quick reference guides. I'm very
excited about the graphical possibilities they offer
and the chance to create something enticing for our
customers. It's reaffirming to hear that other
technical writers have set Framemaker asside for more
suitable software.
