Re: "Dick Stevens' book."
I agree, Pagemaker isn't the same since Adobe bought Aldus (hopefully that statement isn't showing my age). I can remember using framemaker on a NEXTCube, now that's vintage, though it was stable as hell, and display postscript that worked properly.

I can't begin to describe the ways they lied and stole and screwed up.... tho that was Pagemaker, and some of it probably wasn't lies, just stupidity. But every assurance they gave me about the (expensive) upgrade making PDFs easier, then about how and what programs would make those PDFs, then about which versions of, eg acrobat, would work with which version of PM -- my head spins. Finally one of their wonder boys assured me that if I installed Pagemaker in system 10 it would work out of classic in 9.2, which screwed up the entire computer so much I can't use the program even with a reinstall... and did you ever see the pages in a PDF turn to blur? I have. (And that's not the half of it.)
