I have no idea what the tech writer's tool of choice really is. But based on
ads and interviews in my own area, the tech writer's *employer's* tools of
choice are Word and RoboHelp. This might be Microsoft and eHelp's triumph of
marketing over quality, but in marketing *myself*, I always aim to please.

If you hang out here, I can see why you'd think that. Maybe
that's why more and more API doc work seems to be getting done
by developers these days instead of tech writers.
