Flare vs. Frame with DITA-FMx sounds like a toss-up. I assume you are familiar 
with Frame, since you are asking on this list, so why start with something new?

Thanks everyone.

Sorry I wasn’t clear. I’ve used DITA for about two years authoring with Oxygen 
and EasyDITA. I outsourced my script writing to a third party. That’s the 
problem with DITA. To get the docs and help to look professional, you have to 
outsource script writing and that’s expensive.

I was looking for cheaper alternatives. I have used DITA-FMx and I may go that 
route.

I just wanted to know of Flare was a better alternative to structured Frame 
with DITA-FMx

Thanks
Gillian

You can write topics with any tool, but Flare sort of forces you to,
since the source is one file per topic (at least down to some heading
level).

Flare templates are extremely customizable.

How does Flare compare to DITA? It seems like you get all of the advantages of 
topic-baesd authoring, without having to have someone write scripts for you. 
Has anyone tried modifying their templates? How easy or difficult is that. How 
is their help file making product?
