InDesign 2.0

Adobe created InDesign to woo you away from QuarkXPress, which currently dominates the high-end desktop publishing (DTP) niche. The first InDesign releases had a lukewarm reception; the program was underpowered and not worth the trouble of converting files from QuarkXPress. InDesign 2.0 is a different story, however. Adobe has supercharged this program with tables, transparency controls, long document features and output in both HTML and XML (a coding language for documents similar to HTML but far more flexible). We think that the new features make InDesign 2.0 the top choice for producing four-colour magazines, books and corporate identity material, as well as on-screen documents such as PDF files, e-books and Web pages. In fact, InDesign's multi-purpose output and fabulous typography tools finally push it through Quark's glass ceiling. Move over, QuarkXPress -- InDesign has finally beaten you.
