Chris -- IMO you should use whatever tool to which you are accustomed. That
being said, I do think your best option is to use Word for text and then
place it into your InDesign documents for page layout and ease of graphical
placement. I've heard that even InDesign "purists" do this when faced with
large amounts of text.
Good luck and let us know what works for you.
