I'm going to say (write) this again... I don't think the real issue of the
OP is a matter of Word vs. Framemaker.
Rather, I think it's, "If we choose to not use Word as our layout
application (since it's really just a word processor), what other tools
should we be considering?" That is, I gathered from the OP that she or her
manager may be unaware of the capabilities of InDesign, a tool which may be
a far more appropriate choice for her project/company/budget/temperament.
