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.
1) What is important to teach in a Technical Writing course
2) What are good software packages to use (Interleaf, Framemaker)
I would like to combine the two and ask what would be an appropriate
software package and machine to run it on for a Technical Writing course
that is heavily computer based.
What I would be looking for is a package that is powerful, intuitive,
but also commonly used in industry. The main suggestion I have received
so far is Framemaker for the MacIntosh. Is this a good choice, or would
someone care to make a case for another? Any suggestions are welcome.
