Whoa! It's only hundreds of dollars! I'll admit that I think Word for
Windows is a good investment, but I haven't upgraded to FrameMaker 4.0
or bought CorelDraw or Pagemaker because I can't afford them.

Yeah, but you don't *BUY* both the Ford and the Chevy.

People on this list were very helpful when I was whining about this
last year, and make suggestions about service bureaus, copy shops,
etc. By all means learn the software. But you can get exposed to it
without having to pay for it.
