If you are going to only distribute PDFs, I think you can make ID work for
you. However, if you need to distribute online Help and get your content
into HTML for a CHM or browser-based help system, then my experience is that
ID is not going to work for you. You can contact me off-list if you want
more specifics about my experience with ID. I prefer not to rant about the
time in my life when I used it publicly.

I am new to the list and work with both FrameMaker and InDesign. I am
working with a client that is looking at using InDesign for their technical
documentation. They want to know if other tech writers are using InDesign,
as opposed to FrameMaker or Word, etc. Does anyone know of any data or
surveys that might show where InDesign stands in the technical publications
world? Thank you very much.
