I agree with Steve. The time saved of being able to use variables, conditional 
text, text insets, and custom books built from shared chapters -- all features 
of FM that Word can't duplicate -- has enabled me to produce quality, custom 
documents that meet the various needs of our divergent customer base with 
maximum efficiency. If I have to change some info about a new development in a 
product, I only have to change it in one place, and the next time I print the 
13 documents about that product, the change is consistently present in all 13 
documents. At this point, the only thing I use Word for is online forms that we 
distribute to non-writers.

broadening horizons, but if I'd been forced to use Word for everything these 
past fifteen years, I'd have given up tech authoring long ago.
