When I worked at Big Blue, we had an OEM customer who wanted documentation in
Ami Pro format. All I did was write a *GREAT BIG* search and replace macro
to go find (in this case) Bookmaster codes and turn them into the appropriate
Ami formatting codes. Wasn't any big deal, and managed to to about 80% of
the converting without any human intervention.
