Haven't you guys heard of "Competitive upgrades"???? I bought MY copy of
FrameMaker (for the PC) for $319 as a comptetive upgrade. I bought it
I told them I was upgrading from Word for Windows and WP 5.1 (true). Now that
FrameMaker has a new version out, I have been offered the upgrade at a very low
price (since I am a registered owner).
