Yes, all, Frame is wonderful, but perhaps more to your point, Yvonne, let me share a resource I just learned about over the weekend put together by one who seems to dwell in the rarefied atmosphere of Word gurus. There's even a section dealing with the nefarious numbering:

Yes, I know this is backwards (and we all know the benefits of Frame over Word). However, the reason for this is because another department wants to make similar-looking documents, but they don't have FrameMaker. This is a book template, so it includes several "templates" (cover templates, a frontmatter template, chapter templates, appendix templates, and templates for TOC and IX), with roman numeral numbering in the fontmatter and regular numbering for the body of the document, along with cross-reference formats, and some reference page graphics (for warning and note symbols). My question for you is: What is the best way to do this? I was leaning toward using Mif2go to get RTF, and then using Word's master document to build the "book". Is there a better way? Thanks. By the way, if it helps: FrameMaker 7.1 / Windows XP pro SP2 / Word 2003 Yvonne Mills Technical Writer 2 JDSU-ComTest-TFS +1-540-378-1398 _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as jim.pinkham at voith.com.
