TeX is quite a different approach to publishing from most other tools. Most tools enable the designer to get the desired layout. TeX generates a better layout than most designers are able to do. A skilled designer will get frustrated with TeX, because it isn't really a tool for a designer.
You may be confusing TeX and LaTeX; the latter separates the design and the content a bit more, the former is a bit closer to the metal.
But either one will give you extremely precise control over the output if you really want it.
