TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
That's great for the first round of revisions, but for second and
later drafts, you want underline / strikeout markup showing reviewers
what has been added and deleted since the previous draft so they don't
have to waste time re-reading stuff they already signed off on.
Neither RoboHelp nor Flare currently support output of their
track-changes markup to PDF or Word. To me, that's a major minus
compared with FrameMaker plus MIF2Go or WebWorks (neither of which is
in that HAT matrix).
