GCA's courses are excellent. I know some of the instructors personally and they
are very good. Also, GCA was one of the driving forces behind the development
of the Standard and they are very careful about how it is taught. I have not
had experience with the other courses, but I know that GCA keeps a close eye on
the details.

As for Pinnacles, have you contacted the Pinnacles Secretariat for a copy of
the PCSI doc set? They are currently distributing it free of charge. Send email
to pcis -at- access -dot- digex -dot- com for instructions about how to get ahold of the
information. (There is a lot of it!)

Check with your Frame rep about FrameMaker+SGML. That is the next release of
their FM SGML product and from what I've heard, it is a big advance over
FrameBuilder. Alternatively, you might check with Exoterica about Omnimark.
Omnimark is a heavy-duty programming environment for SGML and many companies
use it to build MIF -> SGML conversion routines, us included.
