Thanks Lin.

I need to retain the style definitions...Having everything Normal would be a 
liability.

I think you'll have to talk to Adobe, and probably you'll need your IT people 
to talk to Adobe. To my knowledge, there is no way to edit a FrameMaker file 
without using the FrameMaker application. They're a binary format, and there's 
no method of extracting even the text from them. Used to be you could use 
FrameViewer to at least read them, but I believe that product was discontinued 
around the time Adobe bought Frame Technology.

If you already have PDFs of the files and the Adobe Acrobat application (not 
the Adobe Reader), you can export the documents to Word. You lose the 
formatting information (everything is variations of 'Normal') but not the 
appearance that you created.
