Both should have full-featured demos.

So what kind of a workflow are you looking for, specifically? That
will best direct your choice. What do you need to do, and how do you
need to do it? RoboHelp and ePublisher both create Help from
Framemaker content, but both do so in very different manners for very
different reasons. So, how do you envision your ideal workflow?
