Chapter 8. Long Documents

Chapter 8. Long Documents

One look at the size of this book and you know why the topic of long documents is so exciting to me. But everyone has a different opinion about what a long document is. Some die-hard technical writers insist that if it isn't over a thousand pages, it's not a long document. Others maintain that a document longer than five or 10 pages qualifies. Personally, I think that anyone building a book, a magazine, a newspaper, a journal, or a catalog—no matter how many pages—is dealing with long documents.

Unfortunately, while there are hundreds of thousands of people creating these sorts of things with XPress, it took 10 years for Quark to include even rudimentary long-document features into its flagship product. Today, XPress's long-document features aren't anywhere as powerful as Adobe FrameMaker, but they're pretty good nevertheless.
