"Writers who use Interleaf on a Sun probably have a higher chance of
developing CTS than writers who use FrameMaker on a Sun simply because
Frame offers control key alternatives and Interleaf doesn't"

To which I say Whoa! Wait a minute! You're assuming that just because
Frame offers control key alternatives, people actually use them!
I bet a lot of people don't.

Also, carpal tunnel existed well before the computer mouse did. I
imagine that your chances of developing carpal tunnel depend much more
on how you sit, how you position your hands at the keyboard or mouse,
and a host of other factors rather than whether you use Interleaf or

Nora (a very happy Interleaf user with no sign of carpal tunnel)
