The Frame Handbook: Building FrameMaker Documents That Work
By Linda Branagan & Mike Sierra
542 pages, ISBN: 1-56592-009-0, $24.95 US)

We've released this guide to using the UNIX version of FrameMaker 4.0,
a sophisticated document production system, that takes you from a
thorough overview of Frame to a good understanding of producing books
or even book series. It is for everyone who creates technical manuals
and reports, from technical writers and editors who will become power
users, to administrative assistants and engineers.

It begins by discussing the basic features of any text-formatting
system: How it handles text and text-based tools (like
spell-checking). It quickly gets into areas that benefit from a
sophisticated tool like Frame: cross- references and footnotes; styles,
master pages, and templates; tables and graphics; tables of contents
and indexes; and, for those interested in online access, hypertext.

The book also contains three appendixes that make the use of Frame easier.
They provide:

1) A guide to the useful X resources that let you configure
your Frame environment on a UNIX/X system
2) Tables of keyboard and macro shortcuts
3) A series of sophisticated tips and tricks about such topics
as adding running tabs, creating master indexes, and mixing
text and graphics
