Did I miss something?

Word is a word processor with some formatting abilities.

FrameMaker is a page composition application with some text editing
and graphics abilities.

I read the Word vs. Frame battle and wonder:" "Why is no one comparing
FrameMaker with (for example) Corel Draw?" Same difference
(FrameMaker has some pretty good graphics tools).

The bottom line: use the best tool for the job. Word is (IMO) an
excellent word mangler and my (text) editor of choice.

FrameMaker is my preferred compositor for multi-chap documents with
extensive xrefs, etc. Ventura is my favorite for single-file (no
xrefs), graphic-intensive docs. (Heck, I even like Interleaf for some

Again, use the right tool for the job -- get the copy set up in the
word process and import into the page compositor.
