Good morning,

I have a prospective client who is considering moving from Ventura to
FrameMaker. Their documentation contains text and tables, is broken up
by chapters, and does not have any graphics. Before proceding with the
project, she would like to know if there are advantages of moving to
FrameMaker, or if it would better for them just to stick with Ventura.

I've been using FrameMaker for years, and love it. I ordered a copy of
Ventura for another project on Friday, but haven't received it yet.
This will be my first time using Ventura, so I don't know how to
answer her question. I've read some posts in the archives, and it
seems that people either love or hate Ventura. I've yet to discover
any compelling reason to move to FrameMaker.

Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated!
