Hi all,
I have been away from the list for a long while. Left the rush rush (and
few jobs) climate of ATlanta and landed in Blacksburg, VA. I am doing a
contract for the government and they have an internal Oracle database
where I can edit online help files. Long term I want to convince them to
use WebWorks to export Frame files to HTML. But for now I have to see if I
can grab the online help text from Oracle and format it into Frame. I have
printed out the Frame MIF reference guide and it looks like it is possible
to create a MIF file to do this.

Anybody doing similar work with MIF files? I saw a single source SIG
mentioned. Can somebody direct me to it?

Thanks.
Ken
