What is QuarkXPress?

QuarkXPress is a page layout application. A page layout application is a central gathering place for text, pictures, lines, and other graphic elements, all of which together compose a page or a series of pages. QuarkXPress can be used to produce anything from a tiny hang tag for a line of apparel to a multiple-volume encyclopedia. A finished document can be output on a home laser printer (newsletter, party invitation, etc.), output on a high-end imagesetter for final printing by a commercial printer (book, magazine, brochure, etc.), or exported for on-line viewing.

This chapter is a reference guide to the basic QuarkXPress features. In the remaining chapters you'll learn how to actually build pages and page elements.
