One of the benefits of a FrameMaker + WWP workflow is the repeatable
reliable consistency of it all.

That only fails if you are changing or adding styles all the time.

I recommend giving Vista a year before moving production workflows to
accommodate any part of it.

Something that's come to our attention lately is Vista Help. It's hard
to find that much about it, since we're right at the arrival of Vista
right now. I'm wondering if anyone out there has a strategy for dealing
with Vista... what products have you looked into, what have you opted to
use, what are the contingencies for support on other operating systems?
Currently we're single sourcing in FrameMaker, exporting to PDF, and
also to CHM by means of WebWorks Publisher - which often leaves one
feeling like the Sorcerer's Apprentice, flipping pages while the water
rises, and so we're looking to replace it with something more consistent
in its results. As I say, now's the time.
