Kamela Salyers (sp?) asked about converting documents between Ventura
and Frame. There are lots of good conversion utilities (e.g., Word for
Word, MacLink Plus Translators, etc.), but there's one surefire trick
that works every time, on Mac and PC:

For each separate "story" (piece of text not linked to the other
stories), select all the text and copy it to the clipboard. Then,
simply paste it into the new application. You'll usually lose detailed
formatting (e.g., paragraph rules, leading, kerning), but the
important stuff (words, special characters, fonts, sizes) is almost
always preserved exactly. If not, you can recapture this information
quickly simply by applying the appropriate styles.
