Hmm. Are there inexpensive alternatives to Flare? I know there used to be
some sort of CMSs that were less expensive, but Flare does a lot of
different things. Is there something inexpensive that does the important
things? Just curious ...

Craig, is this changeover something you have control over? Seems like a
puzzling situation, unless perhaps the designer is working on the doc
templates to change the look. Otherwise, it sounds pointless. Or is there
something I'm not understanding, aside from the "that's what they said to
do and they wouldn't take my suggestions"
