InDesign is intended to be a "Quark Killer" and as such competes also with
PageMaker.... it's a page-layout program for brochures, magazines,
newspapers, etc.

InDesign is not, however, a structured publishing system a la FrameMaker
or Interleaf.

The last I heard, Adobe intend to roll the features of Pagemaker into the
InDesign system -- but I could be behind the times.
