Can anyone reccomend a good, simple to use DTP package. Is the MS Publisher any good?

Publisher is OK but it does help quite a lot to have a basic understanding of the terms used in desktop publishing as many of them carry over from the old days of hot-metal printing. But if you stick with the templates and keep your layouts simple it does the job fine.

I quite like Adobe In Design but that's professional-level - I've used it at work and it's very powerful, and gaining ground over Quark Express in magazines and newspapers, too.
