I believe Adobe has an info sheet on their web site which lists the
major reasons to upgrade from 6.0 to 6.5 -- i.e., the new features.
The upgrade is not all that phenomenal. Major addition was the ability
to use frames, a la QuarkXPress. The rest, while well worth it for a
professional, were minor usability enhancements. PageMaker 6.5 can
open 6.0 documents and even save its own documents in 6.0 format, so
there should be nothing lost in using 6.0 to learn about PageMaker.
