And when you buy the Suite upgrade, *seriously* consider the maintenance contract to effectively reduce the upgrade cost for future TCS releases. Adobe has a fairly openly-stated policy of upgrading their products every 18 months.

With the suite, you're using a single set of source docs. With the standalone version, you're repeatedly exporting FM docs to RH. Or making changes in two places. But even if that doesn't matter to you, it makes no sense to buy the standalone version of RH. If you have an FM license, you qualify for the suite's upgrade price, which is less than a new RH license. Richard Richard G.
