QuarkXpress Passport v5.0 beta
A nice preview of what the next version of Quark will look like.
Some updated features including the ability to create or
import XML documents. As you would expect this version
is more web oriented.
Some nice tweaks in the right click menu too. Like the ability to
save a file by right clicking on it and choosing from the now
enhanced pop-up menu. Plus a hundred other improvements.
Still a bit buggy but not too bad.
A number of new and updated Xtensions are included in
