Hi moderator,

I have two questions I'd like to post to the list. If you have any
questions, you may contact me.

1. A friend has asked me to edit and rewrite a 200-page biography of a
family member. From the posts I have read so far, the recommendations are to
charge by the hour. I wonder what other members would feel is a fair rate.
This is a good friend and I want to charge a fair but modest rate. Does
anyone have any recommendations?

2. I am on a contract job and using Word to document an application. My
manager has asked to outline the benefits of going with FrameMaker instead
of Word. I have a draft in Word and my idea is to show a mock up of a
FrameMaker document to visually display the quality difference.

My question is, does anyone know of a website or blog that specifically
shows Frame's superiority? I have found a few but nothing with a strong
compare/contrast. I just thought someone might have found an informative

Thank you.
