FrameMaker 5.x for Windows"--though we do use FM5...)--we're looking for
someone who's excited about technology, excited about the profession of
techical communication (tech writing? information engineering? info
design?), and excited by the prosepect of working for a company that cares
more about the source code than the dress code.
As far as tools are concerned, we use
..in other words, whatever it takes (which is our motto...).
