Nope. All those wonderful plug-ins will become available to me when I get a box 
that will run my copy of FrameMaker 10 (trip to local Apple Store to talk to a 
guru scheduled for March).

Authors don't have any contact with FrameMaker, and I'm still using 7 for Mac. 
(And boy has it earned it's keep!)

I'm sure Rick is happy to read this ;-)

Generally - and perhaps fortunately - my source material tends not to be 
table-heavy. The table that started this thread was one that I created here, as 
it's a convenient way of handling reference lists. Or would be, if FrameMaker 7 
didn't suffer from the bug that strips xref markers when you sort a table. (Has 
this gone from later versions, I wonder?)
