I don't know about transferring FM docs to Pages but I had the 
misfortune of working with Pages several months ago. I'm pretty sure I 
posted (ranted) about it here. In a nutshell, I felt that Pages was a 
toy. Good enough for writing the Christmas letter and that's about it. 
Not at all ready to compete as a publishing tool. For instance, we were 
unable to create a PDF other than with Apple's Print as PDF command 
which didn't make our printer happy at all.

Keep in mind who the target audience is for the iLife suite and that 
will tell you a lot. Pages is the word processing equivalent of iPhoto. 
(Actually I'd put it lower on the scale than that but you get my 
drift.) If you want to work on a professional level, you need a 
professional-level tool.
