Thanks, Steve. By the way, the FrameMaker for Mac OS X petition is almost at 3,300 signatories. That's good to know - if I could sign again, I would. After fourteen years of FrameMaker, I'm currently going into new areas (complex designs, structure), and even now learning new stuff and new

Has anyone heard how many Adobe//Macromedia employees have been laid off as a result of the merger? I think it's being announced today. Poor souls. Being laid off is no fun at the best of times, but one week before Christmas? That's gotta hurt. I guess they'll have little to cheer about in

Jakob, I have to agree with Marcus, that attributes of that length are in the least unusual. Still, exceeding a quantity should result in invalid SGML, but not truncate the export. I therefore suspect you are bumping up against an implementation dependency of some sort. The relevant

I'm confused. You want one autonumber format to control stuff that flows through an entire book. You want paragraph numbers not reset between chapters. If so, then you *don't* want n=0, cuz that will restart the numbering? To set up *one* paragraph style so that it was numbered from paragraph
