Attention, experts:

I am an application developer recently given the role of technical
writer, that is I am now responsible for creating manuals for the
software I develop. As if I don't have enough to do around here!
Anyway, I am terribly confused by all of the desktop publishing software
on the market. I have taken Adobe PageMaker 6.5 and QuarkXPress for
test drives. At the moment I am using Word 97 to create my documents,
but it is painful. My biggest concern is this: my boss could want paper
manuals one day, and the next day he will ask me where the online
version is. It's not as easy as just saving a file in a different
format and then pushing it to the web!

I am going to have to invest in a product where I can create manuals for
print and, with a little alteration, publish to the web. Would I be
safe in purchasing just Adobe Acrobat, or should I consider FrameMaker
or PageMaker? Any opinions would be appreciated.

Please send responses to my email address as I receive this list in
digest form. I will post a summary of responses.
