Best tool for word processing on a Mac?

>From reading the Arial vs. Verdana thread, I wonder what designers' favorite
for word processing on a Mac is. Framemaker has been mine in the past, but
is no
longer available for the Mac... and Word just doesn't cut it.

Cultural variations in how consumers interact withhealthcare websites

Hello from Spain. The same happens here, the user sequence is something like

a) go and have a quick the official product 'website'
b) search at google to see what other users are talking about athe product
c) contact the manufacturer through a website form

This is what I could experience from two projects for chemical and
healthcare-related companies, six and two years ago.

Cultural variations in how consumers interact with healthcare websites

Hello all-

My company is trying to convince a client that there is tangible value
in doing research on the differences in how consumers in different parts
of the world interact with healthcare-related websites. For example, in
the US consumers often question the trustworthiness of a manufacturer's
website about its own products, but may place a lot of trust in an open
forum of other patients and consumers who are not doctors and are not
required to validate their opinions and observations.

We are looking for a special sponsor

One of the sponsors we were holding out for to sponsor our video
capture and publishing endeavor fell through. We feel strongly that it
is part of the IxDA mandate to make sure that our conference is
available to the entire IxDA community whether they attended the
conference or not. We will do these videos, but it will cost us.

To that end we are looking for a sponsor at the Gold or Platinum level
($7500-$12,000) that would want to support this endeavor. Instead of a
booth or an event for their exposure, I believe this exposure is worth
a lot more.
