I've used FrameMaker for many years and, after using just about every other
document preparation package available, believe it's the best around. Check
out the Adobe web site at for some comparisons of
FrameMaker vs. other packages. I'm not sure if they compare QuarkXpress, but
it's been my experience that Quark competed more with PageMaker as more of a
document layout package (great for marcom brochures and documents with a
lower page count) than a comprehensive document development system like
Frame. I've managed developing user and reference manuals up to 1100 pages
in Frame and I couldn't imagine doing it in Quark!

Hope this helps,
