I do not use X-Windows. I use WINQVT (shareware) which allows me to run a
UNIX window on my PC screen. It has the same look and feel as any other
Window's screen. I use FrameMaker 4.0 on a PC (486/66). Our application
runs under UNIX, so I will start the UNIX app in the PC Windows and use my
regular authoring tools such as Paint Shop Pro for all screen captures. I
hope this helps. In any case this is an inexpensive way to go.
