As a proud owner of Frame 5.5.6 and having just attended an Adobe promo for
6.0 I find Dan's comments interesting. I would be dismayed to find that WWP
Standard Ed. is a dud but am most interested in what Frame 6.0 does with PDF
Mark Anyone got a few words on that? Put another way, does the v6
Frame/Adobe package effectively generate stand-alone online docs?

FM5.5.6 was released by Adobe in December 1998. The major new features were
an anemic XML export capability that hardly anyone uses, a Word 97 filter,
improved graphic filters, and a bunch of free postscript fonts. The main
purpose, however, was to fix the large number of remaining bugs that were
introduced in the 5.5 release. Although it was nothing more than a delayed a
bug release, we had to pay a sizable "upgrade" price to obtain it.

Now, 5-1/2 years after the last major release (5.0) Adobe has issued FM6.0,
whose main claim to "majorness" is a set of book-level functions, most of
which were already available as FrameScripts. Oh, and then Adobe also threw
in----tra da---Webworks Publisher "Standard Edition," better known as WWP
Lite, which is virtually useless.
