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.
A very simple rule that I use in deciding which DTP program to use is this:
Pagemaker for most work - books, articles, newsletters, etc.
Framemaker for Scientific work with a lot of mathematical equations, etc.
Quark for newspaper, journal layouts.
Reasons : they have the tools in each of these which suits the specific
sectors which are easiest to use for that purpose and my clients also use
these in their specific sectors.
Hope this helps
