I will be joining a team in which I will be working on the same documents
with two other writers, both of whom are using Frame 7. Ideally we would all
be using the same version of Frame, but we only have an additional Frame 6
licence at present. I

What are the list members experiences with using different versions of
FrameMaker on the same docs, it seems that the most economical option in the
short term is for me to upgrade to FrameMaker 8 but will this cause issues?

In short,

1. Should I use Frame 6?
2. Should I upgrade to Frame 8
3. Should I only work on these docs with Frame 7?
