I've used FM since 2.0 days, and MSWord since v1.0.
The major problems I've had with FM have been OS problems, not bad
coding on Frame's part.
That said, there are indeed some features that I would love to have
from MSWord in FM. Specifically:
- better OLE implementation
- paragraph sorting.
- para boxing as an attribute
- annotation
- built-in grammar checking
- forms support

I use FM for 80% of my doc work (the rest is:
10% MSWord, 5%Notepad/DOS Edit, and 5% other (Quark/Illustrator etc.)
