I don't have the book in front of me, but the way the note in the back of the book read, FrameMaker was used in between the authors output and the printing press (layout, not content creation).

Ever tried to use Word for anything serious?  


That POS gets really funky when the page count starts going up.

At Bank of America we had a large document describing our data files.

All of the machines had Office97.  Some could read the document, some
could not.  Sometimes mine could read it, but then couldn't read
the next version.

Sometimes tables, chapters, or figures would just disappear.  The girl
doing the documentation would add them back in, only to have the old one

Some bizarre crap.
