Last year PC Magazine listed Pagemaker, FrameMaker, and QuarkXPress as
the top three DTP programs. They ran a comparison chart showing the
various features. I don't seem to have that issue any longer, but from
what I remember, Pagemaker was the most versatile overall, but was less
satisfactory for very long documents. FrameMaker was less versatile, but
showed a superior ability to handle long documents. QuarkXPress was
described as being possible superior to FrameMaker in handling long
documents, but is much more difficult to learn.

I have worked extensively with Pagemaker and FrameMaker, but have never
had the opportunity to work with Quark, so cannot speak from
experience. My impression is that FrameMaker is more commonly used in
technical writing departments.
