Why Publisher and Not Just Word?

Word is perhaps the most powerful word processor offered today. Word works with more than just words, as you learned starting with Hour 5, “Advanced Word 2003.” In addition to words, Word lets you import graphics, charts, worksheets, and just about every other kind of data, including videos (represented as icons that you or the reader of your document can click to watch). As you now know, Word lets you easily create documents with multiple columns, headlines, and virtually any other kind of publication you'll need.

Publisher differs from Word in several fundamental ways. First and foremost, Publisher focuses more on your publication's design, whereas Word focuses more on your publication's words. Despite the fact that you can create publications with Word, and quite powerful publications at that, Word's strengths do lie in its ability to manage the words you type. To complement Word (instead of competing with Word), Publisher lets you manage the layout of those words, along with graphics and the other design elements you want to put in your finished publication.
