Hi Rick, As part of my research on FM and AT, I have also been looking at CMS. And I found some good info. I know of at least three CMS systems that will work with FM and I have just begun to scratch the surface of the lists I am looking at.
FM7 can be used with SiberSafe XML CMS. See the article at http://www.frameusers.com/?q=node/182 It can also be used with Astoria. Actually it's a second version called LightSpeedAstoria. Go to www.cmsreview.com/Proprietary/directory.html There are many systems described and compared on that site. Incidentally, Astoria can also be used with AT. Another good CMS system that can be used with FM is Vasont. Vasont has a plug-in for FM that allows you direct access to the CMS. http://www.vasont.com/vasont/software/extensions.asp The Vasont UI streamlines the writing and publishing process by providing an editorial interface so that authors and editors can access Vasont?s functionality from the main menu of their favorite authoring and publishing tools, such as: - Adobe? FrameMaker? - Arbortext Epic Editor - Just Systems XMetaL? - Microsoft? Word A CMS for Word...? Yeah, but who'd wanna... never mind. Another good site with information on CMS is http://www.cmsmatrix.org/ There are about a hundred systems listed there. You can select any 10 of them and the site will build a table comparing those ten. Incidentally, Adobe has officially adopted DITA and CMS. See the article at http://www.travelthepath.com/structure3.html I am hoping that FM8 (which I've read in another email on this list is a full release with new features) will put this all together very nicely. Hope this helps.
