FrameMaker's very practical typographic aces-in-the-hole - 
side headings, straddle headings that run across all columns, 
and across all columns and side heads, and run-in heading 
paragraphs that "snug up" to subsequent paragraphs - aren't 
what the "font-fondlers" mean by "sophisticated" typographic 
abilities, but they are pretty rare among professional 
publishing products, which gives FrameMaker an important edge 
in usability and efficiency.
