Sometime ago, I asked TECHWR-L and TECHCOMM listserv members to send me an
e-mail indicating which DTP (desktop publishing) application they use.

I received a total of 86 responses. Some responses indicated that they used
more than one package, so I tallied all packages indicated (for example, if
an e-mail said "I use Word and Frame," I added one to the Frame tally and
one to Word). Also, some indicated preferences; however, no opinions are not
reflected in the numbers below.

Although I did not specifically request location information, I did receive
some. I tallied the numbers according to large geographical groupings such
as US?Midwest, Canada?East, and so on. The sample is too small for any
statistical analysis. They do hint that Frame is a popular package on the
West Coast of the U.S.

Here are the results, listed in order:
