Can anyone give me the difference between Adobe InDesign, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe FrameMaker, and Adobe FrameMaker Server?

I'm very confused as to what each program do? It sounds to me that Adobe InDesign is replacing Adobe PageMaker, is this correct? And Adobe FrameMaker is almost the same thing as Adobe PageMaker. And why do I need Adobe FrameMaker Server for? What's the advantage of a server?

Any help with this confusion will help me determine what I should buy for my company.

Thank you,

ljCharlie

Have you checked out the adobe page yet (http://www.adobe.com)?

It looks like frame maker is a WYSIWYG xml editor, compared to pagemaker which I believe exports in pure html. If that can even be called pure... In which case I would assume frameMaker server is an XML server.

Finally I don't know if pagemaker is going to get taken over by indesign, but I DO know that inDesign is become more and more popular over pagemaker. I am sure they both have their differences however (pagemaker is more for web now probably?)
