For me it was a worthwhile effort... Many large corp. engineering depts.
use it, as does (did?) O'Reilly & Assoc. for book layout.

Once I learned FrameMaker, it was trivial to learn word processing
software (MS Word, for example) - FrameMaker is really page layout

What is neat is that each format can lead to another... Title leads to
by-line, which leads to Header, which leads to body. Everytime you press
enter, you automatically move to the next format/style. It may sound
odd, but the work just flows out, once you get used to it.
