Along the lines Gene suggests, you may find that a HAT that can import both Frame and Word docs and export to PDF, RTF, and HTML would provide you with the best solution to meet your customers' needs.

BTW, We distribute PDFs for review, and reviewers use Acrobat's commenting functionality. This enables reviewers to do everything electronically, and it also enables us to keep our source material out of the hands of the unwashed masses.

In your situation I would not change current documents that are
working well in Word to FrameMaker or vice-versa, but would keep all
documents in their existing forms until I had thoroughly researched
needs and options.

Exporting techniques to .doc format are being under inspection. The free ones at least, they don't seem to provide a real method.
