This is a future project, but I believe it's structured as it is for manuals
that are printed and/or placed on CD ROM. The manuals and templates already
exist, so I believe most of the work would be making changes to the
templates for style type changes.

Structured or unstructured?

Are these templates for a somewhat standard printed book, or for
something else?

My observation is that doing unstructured templates is mostly paragraphs
and master pages. You might also want to get the Silicon Prairie tools
for managing character, paragraph, and master pages.

I may be updating or designing some templates in FrameMaker in the
It's been a while since I have used FrameMaker at that level. I am
looking for reference documentation or web sites that will help me
update or design the templates.
