I didn't see the ad you mention, but I can tell you for sure that RoboHELP 9
does not work with FrameMaker files. That is, you can neither import nor
export .book, .fm or .mif files. The only ways to move content from
FrameMaker to RoboHELP are: 1) export Frame to RTF and import RTF into
RoboHELP; 2) export HTML using FrameMaker's export feature and import the
HTML files into RoboHELP; 3) export HTML using WWP Standard Edition and
import the HTML files into RoboHELP.

The Dreamweaver part is correct, though. While working with RoboHELP 9, you
can choose to use Dreamweaver (or FrontPage or HomeSite or GoLive or any
other editor of your choice) to edit HTML files.
