Depends on the length and complexity of the manual she'll produce. Frame is much better than PageMaker at indexing, cross-referencing, and all those other niggling book-production tasks. PageMaker is sort of a stripped-down version of Frame for producing posters, brochures, etc. In general, if you want to write a book, use Frame; if you want to produce a graphics-heavy document such as a poster, use Page.

Don't blame Open Market for anything I say!
