How very true, especially when moving info around the net.

The problem is avoiding seperate or specially formatted docs just to
support an "Ascii only" look.

If you're a FrameMaker user we have a filter available called "FM2A"
(FrameMaker-to-Ascii). FM2A will extract and format text from your
fully formatted FrameMaker docs. Tables, tabs, bullets, hanging indents,
numbered paragraphs, and other special constructs can be emulated in the
Ascii output stream.

If you'd like additional information, please email us for details.
