I have used Interleaf TPS and FrameMaker on a Sun workstation (in addition
to other tools). If you consider one, you should also consider the other.
Make a list of what you need to do, and get a demo of each product. Make
the demo person explain how to do each task well enough that you can
understand the process, as well as demonstrate it. This should give you
the information you need to judge which of these fine products is best for
(If you want to know which limitations of Interleaf bugged me the most, I
can try to dredge up my unhappy memories.)
