I am pretty much a Framemaker writer, also having used Word and PageMaker on some projects. Can I get anyones/everyones opinions on these products, what are your experiences like, should I try and convince them to go to Framemaker, should I run away screaming :-) Any input you can give me on these products is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

We use Epic and although there is a learning
curve involved, it is a very powerful tool
that has worked well for us. However, we do
have a person on our team who helps support
it on site so it's not entirely maintenance
free. It produces purer SGML/XML than FrameMaker.
