First off, I'm not trying to revive the old argument between these two
opposing camps.

However, I'm preparing a proposal for my boss to help decide which way to
jump in a proposed upgrade to our authoring tool and I need something more
recent than the excellent (archived) straw poll conducted back in 1995, when
a reader asked for opinions as to which was the superior tool. At that time,
people were still on Word 6 and Frame 5 but I don't want to base my
recommendations on features or functionality that have significantly

FrameMaker 7.2 seems to have made real improvements in several areas but I
haven't been as lucky in finding similar information about Word XP. Can
anyone point me toward a document that compares these two latest versions?
(If not XP, even 2003 would help.)

Thanks for any input.
