Comments from a friend who is also doing an evaluation (for PCs):

Don't know who is asking, but I would suggest they call Frame Corp.
directly. Frame used FrameMaker to create their own help system in all
their products. Personally, I don't like it. I don't know why anyone would
choose this product to create a help system unless they want something that
runs on several OS platforms. FrameMaker would serve that purpose very
well. Otherwise, I would recommend using the standard Windows help, which
is far less expensive and quick.

FYI, FrameMaker is a non-SGML tool, FrameBuilder is an SGML tool (otherwise
the same product as FrameMaker), and FrameViewer is a runtime module for
viewing any FrameMaker or FrameBuilder document.
