I had a Windows copy of Frame 3 tossed to me by my company's Tech Pubs manager back in 1991 or 1992. "They say this is better than PageMaker. Check it out!" I was immediately sold on it and I didn't even work for his department. They shifted over after they saw what I was doing with it. My

Nostalgia can cause trouble. I recently was in an interview with a multinational Health Care company in the Milwaukee/Waukesha area and referred to 'tagging' paragraphs in unstructured FrameMaker. The interviewer was nonplussed and corrected me, saying unstructured FrameMaker was not like XML.
