Perhaps my method is not the best, either, but I've found that it results in a
"True" FrameMaker doc in the end that allows you to change paragraph tags and
such at will. Inserting a Word doc into a Frame doc retains some of the 'old'
properties, I've found, making it difficult to use as a real Frame document.

I copy the text from the Word document, Paste Special as Text in the Frame
document, then insert new anchored frames in the Frame document and import the
graphics by reference into the frames. It's a bit cumbersome as a process, but
the results are very nice.
