I have used FrameMaker and ClearCase before. I don't particularly see a
need to link together all the files in a book within ClearCase, unless
you're going directly from ClearCase to FM or invoking ClearCase from FM
itself. Of course, you have to treat FM files as binary; you can't
compare unstructured files and comparing MIF or SGML/XML files makes
little sense.

PDFs also have to be treated as binary. Also be sure to test your files
between platforms if you are working in a mixed Windows/UN*X environment.
