****Vendor post**** Actually, to clarify for those who may not know, with Flare you get both online and print in one package. With Frame, you get print or PDF. With the addition of ePub (another $1200, last I looked), you get online. You also get very responsive tech support, should you want it.
If you have concerns about or would like to provide input into our pricing strategy or our product strategy, I encourage you to contact me at my madcap email: sburton at madcapsoftware.com Sharon Burton Product Manager MadCap Software Quoting "Flato, Gillian" <gflato at nanometrics.com>: > I just looked at pricing.
