Just a follow-up to Scott's note -- Adobe's FrameMaker upgrade policy is 
one of the most liberal that I've seen from a major software company. 
You can purchase FrameMaker 7.2 for Windows at the upgrade price of $199 
USD if you have _any_ previous version of FrameMaker or FrameMaker+SGML 
(the UNIX price is slightly higher).

Adobe has publicly stated that a new release of FrameMaker will be 
available this year. If the new version is a major release (e.g., 
FrameMaker 8.0), one can speculate that the upgrade price may be 
substantially higher. As a data point, the upgrade price for FrameMaker 
7.0 was approximately $400 USD.
