Take your biggest Word document...something in the hundred-page
range, and figure out how to convert it to a book and file FM model,
with styles, x-refs, imported images, all the FM elements.
By the time you are done, it should, at minimum, look like your Word
document, or better.
By the time you are done, you'll know FM pretty well.
