    When doing layouts for professional print material it's a great program ( I find it a bit better than Quark). However if your planning on using it for personal use it might be a bit of overkill and Publisher 2002 might be a better solution.

    It's mainly for print designers. Something like Quark Xpress, for editorial layouts, etc.

    I've have used publisher and more recently InDesign for a good portion of my work. There really is no comparison between the two excepy they're both publishing and layout programs. My advice if you are serious is to use InDesign and spend the time to learn the tricks. Lots to it like Photoshop but it will also do substantially more than the consumer products.

    If you only need to play with doing business cards or simple computer generated brochures you might get away with Publisher for awhile. One note however, if you need to send files to a printer (brochures, maps, whatever) avoid Publisher, most won't touch it for good reason.

    Personally I much prefer to use Indesign, Quark is a nightmare to learn in the beginning. A designer I used to work with is a god when it comes to quark but even he said that Indesign is a lot easier to drive.
    Also check out this thread about Quark, it mentions Indesign 1.5 quite a bit. As you will see it aint all good for Indesign
