"Forget about XML for the time being. You can use DITA or any other

DITA is XML. Or are you saying that you could use unstructured
FrameMaker paragraph and character tags in the same way you would DITA
elements? That's not entirely true, some elements have no counterpart
in unstructured FrameMaker.

If you can accomplish something using unstructured FrameMaker, why put
in all the time and effort to use structured? Conversely, if you
really need DITA, FrameMaker's probably not the best tool.
