Frame will open *or* import word files with no problem. IMPORTANT: The
key is to have your paragraph styles matching in both packages (and
capitalization counts) -- this will minimize re-tagging.
Step 1. Open/import you doc in frame. (The format may look a little
funky, but don't worry.)
Step 2. Re-import your styles from your MASTER FRAME TEMPLATE. This will
re-format the newly imported text.
All done, with a minimum of hassle!
