CorelXARA is developed by Xara Ltd (for whom I am currently
working) in the UK. It was originally released last year as
"Xara Studio" before marketing was taken over by Corel (we
continue to develop the product).
I'm of course totally biased, but as a technical writer I find
it totally invaluable for producing graphics for help implementations.
It's also incredibly good at WWW graphics.

Feel free to pass any comments on the software to me. Including the
help, of course. =8-)
If anyone has any specific questions, please feel free to mail me.
