TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
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.
Having worked with desktop publishing tools for almost ten years now, I would
never approach any serious tech writing project without one. I prefer
FrameMaker now, but they may be because I don't know Interleaf. I would even
use Ventura over Word if it came down to it! You just cannot beat the features
and abilities of a true desktop publishing system over a wantabe word processor.
If you aren't already on it, you might want to get onto the framers list.
That's probably a better place to learn more about that particular tool.
