I have been tasked with deciding the new SW standard for tech writers in the
company. The main issue is that the 'powers that be' don't want to have to
put it on everyones desktop ($$$). FrameMaker has been dropped from the
running just for that reason, so I am currently looking at XMetaL by
SoftQuad and Epic by ArborText. Has anyone had experience with either of
these, or can you suggest others to review?
