I'm a relatively new member of the list, so I apologize if this has been covered recently.

I need information about platforms for creating Interactive electronic technical manuals (IETMs) that will meet military standards. I've inherited one that was started in MS Word, and it's gotten too large to stay in Word (over 800 pages in Volume I alone).

Does anyone currently work with IETMs? What program/system do you use--an authoring program, FrameMaker, or what? What are the pitfalls/advantages of that program? Is it capable of importing the present Word document as a starting point? Does it produce a standalone product that doesn't require the user to own the program that produced it?

Thanks for your assistance,

Angelia Slifer
