Hi Mary, FrameMaker can do this, and in fact, it is one of FrameMaker's great strengths in the structured content arena. Despite what it lacks in other XML features, it can do a bangup PDF from XML or SGML like no other tool, I think. Note, however, that you need to build the translation mechanism (the "structured application") to get the XML imported and properly formatted. For a short document, an expert might be able to pull this off in a few days, but if you've never done it before, the learning curve can last into the weeks or months.

It's a relatively short document, but I haven't done this before so I'm not sure how to proceed--if, in fact, it can be done. TIA, Mary Holder The Roving TechWriter
