Richard, thanks for your valuable input. Workflow does appear to be the
major differentiator in how one views the quality of Adobe's new suite.

If any of you reading this message have experience with the suite, I'd
love to hear your take on its single-sourcing utility. Does it work for
you to keep the content in FrameMaker and output as needed to RoboHelp?
Do you have disagreements (or agreements) with reviews you've seen of
the suite?
