Scribus, Quark or InDesign are intended to do the layout for books, magazines, 
flyers, whatever, but not for editing texts (content). If someone uses Quark 
for editing a text, he's using definitely the wrong tool.

That's a problem many people seem to have, confusing a layout software with a 
text editor or a word processor. A DTP software is introduced at the end of a 
workflow to combine text and graphics and to produce aesthetical and 
print-ready files for the RIP.
