    You'd probably want to read a review of it first to see if it does what you want, but you could give Pages in iWork a try It's a Publisher/Word hybrid.

    Yeah, that's probably the best option. Better than Publisher IMO.

    publisher ... yuck ... it's like trying to create graphics with powerpoint. i would look into Pages as well if you're doing text layout. If you need to do diagrams, try Omnigraffle (i think it's this one).
