Am intrigued by the claim you can now save .CHMs (HTML Help) natively from 
Frame 12.
Most of the past year I have been faffing around in TechCommSuite 4, basically 
trying to so nothing more complicated than author in Frame and make a CHM out 
of it. I have not found it very easy or intuitive at all: basically RoboHelp 
breaks everything out of the box, and I've found it very arduous making 
everything just look the way it was in Frame in the first place! (Unless you 
choose settings to just have things "As Source", which I keep getting told I 
shouldn't do because it generates atrocious HTML).

If I can now do "Save As... CHM" and just tweak a few output settings (same way 
as I tweak a few Distiller job options for Save As ...PDF) that would be a lot 
less fuss! And there'd be no need to fork out for Tech Comm Suite 5 - so I 
could save the money and buy Illustrator instead ;) 
(Sorry, rent Illustrator instead ... :/  )
