I am posting this reply to my question (repeated below), on behalf of Jeff
the Tumbleweed guy, who cannot post to the list at the moment.
>> Can anyone clarify the relationships between Tumbleweed, Wordperfect,
>> Novell, and Corel in respect of Envoy?
>> I am wondering who really controls Tumbleweed, and what the implications
>> will be. For example, can I assume that the Tumbleweed/WP/Corel connection
>> will result in better interoperability between Ventura and Envoy than
>> between Ventura and Acrobat? Likewise, can Frame users expect better
>> Frame/Acrobat linking?
