Here's a topical comment by Charles Ellertson, on a Typophile discussion
thread about InDesign vs TeX :
"Well, like PageMaker and Quark, InDesign will eventually be replaced.
Soon, I hope, and by someone who views typesetting software as a tool, one
to be used by skilled craftsman, not a coffee grinder for text so you can
have kewl graphics. XeTeX looks more & more attractive."
