We've used both Quark and FrameMaker. My colleague, a diehard Quark user, has agreed that for the documents we are creating (user manuals for medical devices) FrameMaker is the better way to go. Quark does not seem to have features for creating books which makes making a global change in the document very difficult. There are a number of other document-specific features that I use in FrameMaker that Quark just doesn't do, or doesn't do as well.

They want me to rebrand their technical documentation (currently in Word) to comply with their new brand. I suggested FrameMaker, but they are pushing Quark. I alway thought of Quark as more appropriate for designers that do brochures, etc. Has anyone used Quark for technical documentation? I would appreciate any advice/feedback on using this tool to create technical documentation. I guess what I am really looking for is information to sell them on FrameMaker over Quark. I appreciate any help.
