I have been a Framemaker user since before some of you were born :-) I
go back to Frame 1.2x on the X Windows system. I am currently using WW
Publisher to convert a very large document (600 pages) to HTML. In my
opinion WW has the worst customer support in the business. I feel
strongly enough about this, that I want to change to a tool, Flare,
produced by the former RoboHelp developers. Maybe the tool goes by a
different name for a Framemaker conversion but the company (Madcap) is
the same.

There's a WWP-Users group that might be able to help you in the short

Does anyone have experience using this tool to convert Frame to HTML

Not extensive experience as of yet, but the new version does support FrameMaker.

Yes, I know this is a relatively new tool. I am not too worried because
I know the abilities of the original Robohelp development team. I'll put
my money on them.

IMHO, that's a good bet to make. They are a very customer-responsive
team. And yes, they know their stuff.

And yes, I know my file is much too large and needs to be broken up but
I inherited this mess and I am trying to fix some of the problems, one
problem at a time.

600 pages? In FrameMaker? Oh, that's nothing... :-)
