Quark is THE program in magazine and book publishing. The vast majority of
magazines you see on newsstands, and books you see in bookstores, are done
using Quark (Time, Newsweek, People, Details, USA Today, the list is
endless). It is superb for long documents.

TOC and Indexing does not come standard with Quark, but there are several
extensions that do these functions.

I've taught people to use Quark and to use PageMaker. Quark is much easier to
learn than PageMaker. It works more logically and allows for more precise
alignment and text adjustment.
