The two tools are designed for different layout work. What are you going to
do with the application? If you need to create design-intensive materials
(e.g., brochures, magazines), then Quark is probably a better option. It's
design ed for that kind of work. If you need to create technical manuals or
books, then FrameMaker has features that support this process
better--cross-referencing, autogeneration of TOCs and indices, conditional

I haven't used Quark. Most of the folks who I know that are familiar with it
work for weekly newspapers or magazines. I've been using Frame for about 5
years. It does most of what I need, and coupled with WebWorks Publisher or
Acrobat, it can deliver it in multiple forms and versions easily.
