Hi Mike,

I'm glad to know good ol' VP is still around, though I haven't used if
for maybe 10 years at a previous employer. (They dropped VP in favor of
having the writers produce text in Word (or was it WordPerfect?) and
then hiring additional staff to format the docs using Interleaf. (And
boy, was THAT a can of worms!)

Before that debacle, I recall fondly how many of us really took to VP
and how it just really, really made our documents look so good and
easier to produce (at least at THIS place). I was even a member of a
Ventura Users' Group here in Atlanta.

But from what I remember, Corel snatched up VP after we stopped using it
and I don't know if that resulted in improvements or problems for VP.

I also know there are a number of others out here who hated VP, but for
me and the other writers I knew, it was great.

Today, it's FrameMaker, and even with its various idiosyncrasies, I love

While I received lots of good feedback regarding my "dilemma," I never
thought to ask: are any of you using Ventura Publisher? That's what I'm
currently using and I love it.

Just curious.
