Not to put too fine a point on it, but I recall when the first
Framemaker came out. I was writing books on the emerging field of
desktop publishing in those days.

For some other interesting topics when browsing Wikipedia, take a look
at Ventura Publisher, Generalized Markup Language, Charles F. Goldfarb,
troff, Donald Knuth, and Scribe (markup language). That will give you a
pretty good background in the history of technical publishing.
