Grub versus Boot Manager

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Latex seems to be a markup language for 
documents done in Tex. If so, one cannot possibly compare it to 
FrameMaker, which is a large document creation tool that includes a 
WYSIWYG editor. The structured version of FrameMaker uses tags that 
translate 1-to-1 to XML, so in that sense FrameMaker files are similar 
to Latex files.

Lars, if you are a professional technical writer and you can point me to 
large documents (say 100 pages or more) that were created in Latex, I'd 
be more than happy to look at them.
