I would not use Word to produce anything more than a few pages. It is best
for memos, letters and simple brochures.

FrameMaker is great for long, text-intensive documents. Use it when you
need many different paragraph and text formats. It is more expensive and
more difficult to learn than Word, but well worth it in the long run. Great
upgrade pricing, too.

PageMaker is better for short, graphic-intensive documents Use it when you
need sophisticated control over image and text placement (e.g.,
newsletters, brochures).

Does anyone use MS Word to produce books or manuals?
The Tech Comm group at my company is beginning to develop training books
and software manuals.
What is the benefit of Page or Frame over Word for something like this?
Would you say Page or Frame is a "must have" when you're getting into
the publication arena?
I want to start off on the right foot.
