I've noticed that some of you use both Word and Framemaker to create
documents. Being rather new to this field of work, I have yet to use
Framemaker, although I have significant experience working with Word. I
understand that if one works with documents under 200 pages Word is a good
option and if the documentation is over 200 pages Framemaker is preferred.

The problem that I am facing at this moment is that I am working with both
short and long manuals, many being well over the 200 page mark. I would
consider using Framemaker for these documents but I am concerned that the
"look" produced by using these two programs will differ considerably. It is
in my company's interest to have a consistent look to our manuals, whether
they are hard copies or help files.

I am interested in knowing if I can use both these programs without
compromising the consistency of the look.

Since I am a strong supporter of keeping the traffic of this mailing list
to a minimum, I am willing to post a summary of the replies if people send
me their messages directly rather than posting them through the list.
