Hi, all.

Very slight change of topic (but kinda related):

Can anyone comment on their experiences with FrameMaker 8 (not 7.2) on
Vista? Does it work as well as on XP?

I was about to do that installation (on a second laptop that only runs
Vista) and realized that I better ask about it first! :)

Regards,

Z
