This is true--but it doesn't convert precisely. The particular problem I
have is with footnotes--the font is reduced for the superscript, but I can't
get it to go bigger again. I suspect that most of you are not using footnotes,
so this is probably not a problem for most of you. Also, there are what I
would call weird hard page insertions that I can't get rid of. (I did the
FrameMaker tutorial and have done a couple of small things in FM, but I am
by no means an expert.
