I would echo Keith Anderson's sentiments on Microsoft Publisher. It is
not a sophisticated business tool by any means. Keith is also right
about the end products of the templates looking the same. Half of the
Mom and Pop restaurants in America must have made their menus in
Publisher. However, I do think that Publisher is a great product if you
are a home user making a church newsletter or a business that needs to
crank out quick tri-fold brochures. And you can achieve a good look if
you don't let the wizards guide you and if you avoid the clip art that
comes packaged with Publisher.
