We use this too, but we have difficulty with some of the
larger manuals especially illustrated manuals. Anything over
5 meg we have to break up into smaller files, and Word's
master documents feature breaks too. For those manuals we
have to hand-do page references and clip and paste TOCs.
Since we have only one user guide that is large, and the
other large files are programmer documents, we are not
rabble-rousing to get Frame. But if I was here permanently,
or had a larger amount of big docs, I would try to get
Frame or another desktop publishing platform in here.

That'll be 2 cents, please.
