I'd rather live in Oklahomo and NOT use quark ever again. Sounds fair.

I forgot to mention that we are in the middle of phasing out Quark.  Just got done with busy season, and need to convert all of our templates to InDesign.  We don't like Quark here either, that is just what all of our templates were built in years and years ago before I worked here.
