A while back, I asked for comments from techwhirlers about their
experience with MadCap's long-document software (Blaze). I only
received one reply, which suggests that the software isn't yet in
common use in our little community. Which is a shame, because the
software shows a lot of promise, and like Flare, will help keep Adobe
honest. <g>

I've now completed my review of the software, which is available (at
great length) via the following link: <

Please feel free to send me any error reports or suggestions about
unclear descriptions (offlist is better; on-list is fine), and I'll
work with Eric to update the article asap so we can correct the
problem. I don't claim to be a Blaze expert, but I know Sharon Burton
is a techwhirler, and I'm sure she can answer any questions I can't.
