Thanks to the following for your replies and thoughtful discussion:

Geoff Hart: Yes, our content reviewers do not have FrameMaker. We are asking
the analysts to check the content for technical accuracy. Thank you for your
tip to save the HTML content into Word, to use the revision tracking tool.
We'll keep those instructions and try them out!

Scott (Quills): Thanks for the suggestion to use the same PDF to route to the
reviewers (so they can see each other comments). Currently, we send the
original out, and receive the comments on our end, and the others don't see
each others comments, unless we take an extra step.

Also, thanks to Joseph Lorenzini, who emailed off list, suggesting the latest
Techcom suite from Adobe. I've read the information about it and the upgrade

both the comment-enabled PDF and a link to the HTML to the content reviewers,
so they can see both the forest and the trees.
