Microsoft Word 6.0 is a terrific word and document processor. It is also an
adequate desktop publishing package for projects that are consistently and
minimally formatted. We produce our software manual (250 pages) on Word. (It
had been produced in Ventura, but after Ventura was essentially abandoned, I
wanted to make a change.) With our user manual in Word (and everything else
too), it is accessible to everyone in the company for proposal and marketing
efforts. We did make some compromises in the way we used auto-numbering and
frames, but the results are excellent. The manual has one to two bitmaps
(screen captures) per page. Chapter sizes we try to limit to 25 pages. We
output to a Xerox Docutech. I'd be happy to give you more details if you'd

Going to Word is a good move. Higher-end desktop publishing packages are
terrific. But for a wider company audience, they make your documents more
difficult to access.
