Bwahahaahahhahahahhahahahahahah.

Quark v. Frame = RageMaker. LOL!

Bear in mind, there is no coversion from PageMaker to FrameMaker, other
than RTF.

Landmines? Uuuum, I'd guess support for tables, TOC, IX, and an aside to
note that PageMaker is quite nice if your layout changes a lot and you
use a lot of color graphics.

As for PM 6.5, I used it fine in Win98. Dunno about 2k. PM 7 is out.

Cheers and grins,

Sean

To the folks who weighed in on FrameMaker v. Quark ... thanks so much.
It
helps.

The client has decided to use PageMaker.

I'm assured by a consultant the client hired that PageMaker is the best
of
all possible tools, though the book project will contain no graphics,
very
limited page-to-page variation, will consist of dozens of sub-documents
that
will need to be rearranged for each new edition, and will need a new TOC
and
index generated each time.

Oh, well ... does anyone have an idea where the landmines are dealing
with
long docs in PageMaker?

And has anyone heard about compatibility issues between PM 6.5 and
Win2k?

Thanks again. As I learn, I'll be happy to share.
