Q: Word to Frame conversion, what to look for?

Background: WIN NT 4.0, Frame 6.0, Word 97 & 2000, Acrobat 5.0

When converting Word .doc containing multiple graphics (e.g. screen shots
saved as .jpg's) and tables (formatted with shading, alignment and character
styles) into Frame what issues should I be aware of?

True or False - Will graphics need to be individually reinserted into Frame

True or False - Do tables need to be reformatted once they are in Frame .fm?

I did a conversion from Word to Frame by saving Word .doc as .rtf, inserting
it into the Frame .fm. Then I inserted each graphic separately.

Is there another method that I could have used?

A Technical Writer here was under the impression that the conversion was
going to be more seamless than what I have described. What am I missing?

Thank you in advance!
