Well, if OmniGraffle would shape text I probably would not be looking 
around. I have tried InDesign and find it is too expensive for what it 
does. I really dislike the interface. It seems the TeX is well liked 
and respected. And if something goes wrong there are lots of people to 
give and receive help.

Knuth, Addison-Wesley, 1984?

It changes a lot and there are, or will be, many of them in different 
page formats, primarily letter and A4.
