I'm coming out of lurk mode after a long, busy silent
period to get some answers for my manager. Please
reply to my e-mail instead of to the list. If there is
any interest in a Summary, please let me know, and

<<Our Documentation Needs:>>
1) Print technical reference guides
2) Upload guide content onto our various Web sites
(our audience prefers HTML over pdf)

<<FM+SGML Back-end Programming>>
We've heard that back-end programming is needed to
configure FM+SGML for our use/needs. We do not know
what that means, in terms of "programming." Does this
mean setting up the DTDs, or crunching code? We're
researching this with Adobe and with our Value Added
Resaler. However, if you could also shed light on this
we'd be grateful.

<<Do You Like FM+SGML?>>
This is a bit different than asking if you are
successfully using it.

<<Why My Inquiry?>>
Our company is growing, adding new businesses. The
content of our guides will be revised with each new
business, which is a source document nightmare. We
feel we need to single-source very soon, and guess
that FM+SGML is the best way to go.

Thank you, in advance, to those who reply. You'll make
Orange County an even better place to live just by
your kindness in sharing your experiences.
