I don't disagree with any of Michael's points, but the shorter and easier
way to do this is to call your Fm/Adobe sales/distributor and ask for help.
This is what these guys do every day -- you're unlikely to improve (on your
first attempt) something that has been a fixture of the corporate adoption
process for years.

See what they can give you, use it as a base, and go on from there.

Faced with this task, I would try the following:

- Check an internet search mechanism for the terms "FrameMaker",
"PageMaker", and "comparison"

- Visit Adobe's and PageMaker's web sites. They probably have some
marketing collaterals and white papers with their metrics.

- Check the on-line archives of PCComputing, ZDnet, or some other magazine
that does product comparisons and ratings.

- Call Adobe and Pagemaker directly and ask if they have metrics.

- If you have a copy of each program, put them on similar machines and test
them one against one another.
