Good day, everyone.

I've finally surrendered to single-source thinking, so I'm converting my
Frame user guides to RoboHelp (via import from RoboHelp). Even with a CSS,
however, I spend a lot of time reformatting content once it's in RH. Is
there a better way to do this? Should I convert the Frame book to HTML first
and then import to RH? ANY advice would be great. Thanks!
