Somewhere in my travels I came upon some information about DeltaView - a
software package that allows you to compare versions of documents. I
downloaded a trial version and I was very impressed (you can see a
demo/download a trial at Unfortunately, the price tag is
a little steep - my Project Manager has yet to recuperate!

I have two requests:
1. Does FrameMaker allow you to compare documents? If so, how easy would it
be to import my Word documents into Frame and do this comparison? (My

me. Then again, that's probably why I'm a Technical Writer and not a
marketer or sales person.)
