I seem to be hearing more and more references to PageMaker being used
for documentation. Does anybody else have the same impression?

And, if you have used PageMaker, what kinds of projects have you used it
on? Would you agree with the distinction that FrameMaker is for long
documents with few different page layouts, while PageMaker is for
documents in which page layout varies?

Just playing the game of trend-spotting, so I'll appreciate any

"Learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You
may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie
awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may
miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil
lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds.
There is only one thing for it then--to learn. Learn why the world wags
and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never
exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust,
and never dream of regretting. Learning is the thing for you."
--T. H. White, "The Sword in the Stone."
