>I have two compatability questions:
>1. Are (or to what degree are) FrameMaker files compatible with
To go from Page to Frame you need to export to something like Word5 files,
then import into Frame. I have not tried it myself, so I can't verify how
well it works. It would be nice if there was a 1-step conversion, though.
Don't know about Frame -> Page.
>2. To what degree are Mac PageMaker files compatible with PC
I think Page on Mac and Page on PC is pretty seamless. I did some
newsletters with someone who worked in Page on a PC, and all I needed on
the Mac was something like DOS Mounter (or a network) so I could read a DOS
floppy. I don't think needed to save or export anything special to create
a Mac-readable file. I think it's just a regualr save.
