Hello,

I am currently in school for Technical Communication and will be graduating
next Spring. I've been trying to determine what types of software would be
best to purchase while I can still get a student discount. I saw a post
about Adobe Tech Comm Suite a few days ago. I also see Frame Maker and Dita
a lot white doing tech comm searches. Are these worth buying as an
individual? I've been told several times to learn HTML. I have a basic
understanding for coding such as Java and C++. Is there a legit way to get
certified HTML to show a future employer? I've done many walk through
tutorials on Youtube, and have a basic concept and understanding of HTML. I
feel for a future job having some sort of tangible documentation proving
that would benefit me. Are there other certifications outside of a college
degree I should look into? There appears to be a large amount of webpages
saying they offer certificates, but which ones actually carry weight? I am
working on determining what I could be doing outside of going to class to
help me really have an upper hand as far as employment in technical
writing.

Thanks,

Craig
