TypePad (http://www.typepad.com/) is the hosted version of the Moveable Type
Ted, Art is right in saying that converting to html with mif2go is an option
but I guess it depends on how much formatting has been done in Frame and how
much of that formatting you want to keep. I think you'll also need to switch
off the default html editor in the TyePad dashboard (or the admin area where
you write posts - sorry, it's been a long while since I've used TypePad!)
I'm not clear from your question whether you want to convert the whole book
and output it to a multitude of posts or whether you want to "cherry pick"
isolated paragraphs as posts. If it's the latter, it could be simpler to
copy chunks of text as you need them into a text editor (e.g. Notepad on
Windows or one of the many excellent free editors out there) and format the
html as you go.
More information please!
