"It can be hard to grasp the separation of content and formatting within a structured authoring environment if you are used to working with word processing..."
"Flare did a nice job of bridging that gap. Our students liked that they didn't have to worry about formatting, as well as how easy it was to set up the online Help navigation using the indexing and glossary features in Flare. Whether they were technically savvy or not, all the students could get the output they needed."
