Howard (and others),
it might be worthwile looking out for Adobe's new product which might be
formally introduced at the Seybold conference at the beginning of March.
MacWeek (http://www.macweek.com) has a list of features which sounds quite
impressive to me; and includes Quark import. And they say that they will
cost way less than Quark's XPress (where something new might be announced
at the Seybold conference as well).
Hope, this can help.
