One option I found that might work well for you is getting a copy of
"FrameMaker 5.5.6 for for Dummies." It comes with a demo version --
which, unfortunately, you have to activate the demo via the internet
(e-mail, I think).

Another option is to pick up an older version of FM -- eBay,,
Half Price Books, where ever. I picked up version 4.x at Half Price
Books (a bookstore; check to see if there's one in your area; even
better, they now have a web presence!) for about $50; 6.0 was about

Once you have this older version, register it with Adobe. You will
then be eligible for the upgrade price (~$200).

Still another option is to check Adobe's site. Occasionally, they
offer these traveling training sessions (one of which was in my area a
month ago, and I overslept and missed it(!!!)). A friend of mine who
went reported that he got a free copy of FrameMaker 6.0 (which
explains all those exclamation points).
