While I would NOT call myself a *Frame-lover*, I do concur with the
advice to forget all that came before and start fresh with Frame. I just
about cried myself to sleep while trying to learn Frame, but now I have
picked up the model and can work quite comfortably. I have even begun to
appreciate some of Frame's features, such as conditional text and
hypertext links in the ToC.
