Thanks, Bodvar. And when you've finished that, try Tracey Kidder's 'The Soul of a New Machine', about how Data General played catch-up with DEC in the early days of sixteen-bit minicomputers. Moral: If you want to achieve the impossible, make sure that no-one involved believes that it *is* impossible. I personally regret that what I thought at least started out as a relevant technical discussion has been perceived as flogging a dead horse. I also run a mixed shop of Macs and PCs, and operate a horses-for-courses platform policy. Over the years I have used FrameMaker on Unix, Mac and PC. There is nothing wrong with FrameMaker on PC, per se, it's just that all that Windows nastiness spoils it. And I mean, *really* spoils it. We do indeed have out own platform for this sort of discussion, and I will attempt to refrain from platform specifics in future. -- Steve
