Subject:FrameMaker 5/HTML Lite From:Michael Andrew Uhl <uhl -at- VISLAB -dot- EPA -dot- GOV> Date:Wed, 17 Apr 1996 07:59:04 -0700
I agree with David: HTML Lite, which comes with FrameMaker 5 for
Windows is awful.

FrameMaker 5.0 comes with a built-in Frame->HTML converter called
"HTML Lite". I've used it and heartily recommend that you use
_anything_ else. It was just awful.
HTML Lite is a piece of junk put out by Quadralay. You have to spend
bucks (about $299) to get the real thing. Don't bother. If you need
a better Frame->HTML converter, try WebWorks instead at $99 with
roughly the same features.
I don't know anything about HoTMETAL Pro. But as a general suggestion,
I can say that you shouldn't bother with any DTP --> HTML converter
that doesn't convert tables. Tables are a real pain to do by hand
in HTML. You'll probably need it to convert equations too but tables
are a must.
Hope this helps.
