# Error generating WebHelp/WebHelpPlus output in Flare v4.2

I don't understand you people. When did this become the Forum for FrameMaker
as Stand-alone only? By your definition, this list should also be out of
bounds for anyone using FrameMaker with another program.

want to import Word files to FM or export FM to Word, don't waste our time.
To the writer who just asked about highlighting CorelDraw graphics in FM to
appear in Acrobat, sorry too many other applications in your question.
Mif2Go users? Go away and bother Jeremy, and leave us alone.

\end sarcasm

Seriously, for the first time, I am disappointed with this list and I've
subscribed to it for a long time already. I turned to this forum for help
because work in Framemaker is a significant part of the workflow in which I
had a problem. The error occurs during import of FRAMEMAKER files. So what,
pray tell, is so irrelevant here that some of you have to flame me? If you
don't know the answer and don't care, then please be quiet - no shame in
that because Flare is a relatively new program and many people have yet to
work with it. But as long as FrameMaker is being used in conjunction with
other products and in the production of content in multiple output formats,
then questions regarding the FrameMaker relationship to the workflow are
perfectly legitimate on this list and not a waste of time. Be tolerant
enough to realize that other workplaces use FrameMaker in different ways
than yours. It's not 1994 anymore, but 2009.
