Kent Newton has it right: FrameMaker is less intuitive than
Word or PageMaker, but it's better at handling large documents.

On the other hand, too many people ignorantly argue the
superiority of Framemaker without an adequate awareness of
the other products out there.

Yesterday, a colleague bought me lunch with the intent of
asking for software advice. His group produces case report
forms (CRF) fr clinical trials. They currently use FrameMaker but
find it cumbersome and inadequate in its import and export
capabilities. I recommended PageMaker for their work. CRFs
are typically medium-length documents (20-120 pages) and vary
greatly from page to page.
