Sorry to chime in late. I hadn't had a chance to open all my mail since Thursday.
First of all, we're talking a bit about apples and oranges. FrameMaker is a desktop publishing tool while Flare is an online Help, XML-based authoring tool. The two may work hand-in-hand in the near future. For several months, I've understood that Flare v2.0, scheduled for release in the coming months, is supposed to be able to support import of FrameMaker files (not via MIFs, but actual FM files) as it does for Word files.

I am trying to decide which one to go with for the documentation for my company. Framemaker seems to be the industry standard, but is Flare just as good? Any thoughts?
