Per Bruce's request:
> You're asking a propriatary software producer to commit the ultimate sin -- admit that open source products are superior to what they produce :)
> I used FM6+SGML at work for a while, but went back to emacs in the sgml mode and DocBook. It works better. The only useful function that FM provides is a graphical user interface, but it is unnecessary once you are comfortable with emacs.
> FM would be nice if DocBook was the default.
Funny - I've come to the same conclusion about what to use - and I don't
even like emacs
BTW - would you post your comment to the list? It never hurts to remind
people that open source solutions are out there..
