[Sent again because I received no reply the first time, and I can't
imagine that nobody here is using Blaze!]

I'm having some fun playing around with MadCap's Blaze software while
writing a review of the software. Given that the kind of job Blaze is
best suited for (long, complicated documents and sort-of-single-
sourcing) isn't what I do for a living, and given that I won't have
time to test the software to destruction (as I do daily with Word
<g>), I'd love to receive any comments from those of you who are using
the software heavily.

For example:
- Are you satisfied with the software's speed and stability?
- What aspects do you like best -- and dislike most?

If all goes well, I'll have a first draft of my review written in the
next week or so, and will publish the full version shortly thereafter
on the techwr-l site not long afterwards. (Stay tuned!)
