ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 19, 2005 - Arbortext, the leading provider of

while also reducing total publishing costs and improving customer
satisfaction.  I look forward to being part of the Arbortext team as we
help these organizations develop enterprise publishing strategies to
improve their publishing processes."
