Hello Mary,

we have done such conversion projects for some of our customers, including
Picanol, Alcatel and Bobcat. The process went like this:

1. Analyze the Quicksilver/Interleaf documents.

2. Design FrameMaker templates.

3. Convert the QS/IL documents to FrameMaker.

4. Provide FrameMaker training to the technical writers.

The "issues" you should be aware of depend on the complexity of the QS/IL
documents, which also determine the smoothness of the conversion process:

- tables
- cross-references
- microdocuments
- graphics

Long-term stability? Yes, absolutely.

Training? You can use the Adobe Web site to find an Adobe Certified
FrameMaker Instructor in your area:

Support? Yes, there are some very active FrameMaker user forums. For example
FrameUsers, which you find here:

Best regards
