Creating content is a discrete activity. I never create content in
FrameMaker, it takes up too much memory, works slowly and requires too
much fiddling.

Normally I use a text editor and the simpler the better. The one I
prefer is Notebook, a shareware product for Gregory Braun in
Milwaukee. I gives me some minimal outlining capabilities in the form
of a TOC.

Once the content is written I transfer it to FM for formatting.

The less I deal with FrameMaker, the more productive I can be.
