What a great history of FM...I started out on Ventura Publisher, while
working for Xerox, who had purchased the software and didn't know squiddly
squat about it so, as someone who had gone NUTZ trying to find some way to
do process doc and software manuals without going postal, I set out to
learn it, then demoed, then moved to FrameMaker in about '92 as I recall.
Oh, and I agree with Word for DOS...I fought, kicking and screaming, when
the Windows versions came out. Still do in point of fact!
