Hi Peter,

I am not sure whether it would be fair to do that.
While researching for a best fit on the Web, I found that Quark and
Adobe have been caught up in a no- holds-barred battle for turf for the last
two or three years. The competition, though, is good for the customers, as
it has lead to major cuts in prices, better product bundling, innovative
features etc etc.
I have made my choice but I am not mentioning it in these columns as it has
the potential of being misunderstood as an attempt to promote one product
over the other.
TECHWR-L is a prestigious and influential platform for professionals across
the globe and I would like to maintain its integrity.
However, I would be glad to share my views with you, individually, over any
other media of your choice.<<

Pretty lame excuse Raj. Many on this list have asked similar questions and
shared the answers with the list. I find your reasoning, as I said, pretty
lame. Personally, I feel insulted.
