The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I've also got a whole chapter on editing using Adobe FrameMaker in my book,
Electronic Editing. Most of that chapter doesn't directly address your

include a slightly amended version of the newsletter article I mentioned above.
(The book also has a chapter on editing using Adobe Acrobat.)
