As concerns the growth or decline of PageMaker, Framemaker, and Interleaf. I
am doing a study, in its second year. Who is hiring and what are they asking
for. So far, we find a decline in jobs asking for PageMaker (down to about 6%
of all job ads from about twice that), and a substantial increase in jobs
asking for Framemaker skills (up to about 32% of all job ads). Interleaf
appears consistently at about 2%--mostly for jobs in Europe.
Hoping this is helpful.
