Hi there,

Is there a way to automate the formatting of an element in Structured
FrameMaker? To map it to predefined paragraph tags, and do these
paragraph tags have to be limited to the elements, or can the same
paragraph tags be applied to other content within the document that are
not elements? So how would I go about specifying a paragraph format for
a set of elements?

Is there a way that I could import XML content, have certain styles
applied to each element automatically, without having to apply the style
individually to each element?

Any help would be appreciated,
