I'm currently researching the options for a FrameMaker online help
system. No screen captures involved, but I currently think that
FrameMaker might run too slowly to be an effective or convenient to run
an online help system. I've heard recently about about a "view only"
version of Framemaker that might be ideal for this purpose. Has anybody
seen this version of FrameMaker in action?
