Dear gang,

There has been some discussion on the list lately comparing ConTeXt with  
InDesign. Are there any Framemaker users on the list? I'm interested in  
comparisons between ConTeXt and Framemaker, with cross-comparisons with  
InDesign as appropriate.

What does ConTeXt have that Framemaker does not?

What does Framemaker have that ConTeXt does not? (svg integration comes to  
mind -- there's been some svg discussion here the last couple of days).

 From what I know of Framemaker -- structured processing etc, it seems that  
would be a more a~propos comparison with ConTeXt than InDesign.

Eventually I would like to establish a wiki page with detailed and  
accurate comparisons between ConTeXt, InDesign, Framemaker, and perhaps  
other DTP applications as well. I even plan to get my hands on the  
"competition" so I can get more 1st hands knowledge for my own edification.

Best wishes
