Well, those are cool, but a clarification: FM8 imports Word and Excel
2007. However, IMHO, this is no different than the import for Word and
Excel 2003 provided by earlier versions of FrameMaker. That is, MS
Office and Adobe FrameMaker are different weapons with different
purposes, and importing from one to the other will always require a
certain dose of aspirin until and unless you get a well sorted routine
set up. And, FrameMaker's Word and Excel import continues to be much
better than Microsoft's FrameMaker import. Again, IMHO.

FM 8 is sounding pretty nifty. It offers multiple undo *with* "text
edit tracking." I think that the ability to "Generate Adobe PDF files
with live 3D models (WindowsR only)" sounds really neat. Plus, now you
can import Word and Excel files without a headache.
