>How well do documents created in Word (6.0 and 7.0) convert to Frame?One of the stumbling blocks in our quest to convert was that there
were rumors that Word doesn't convert very well to Frame at all
(another one along the same lines being "people will want to do their
updates on line and everyone uses Word" because no one actually wants
to hand me their hard copy redline revisions. Sigh.). Is this true? If
so, can anything be done about it?

In my one-manual project with Frame, the only way I could [decently] get
an Excel spreadsheet into Frame was to pull it into Word as a table,
play with the table a bit, then import that Word file into Frame and
tweak it.

I'd say that if you were importing content, the import will do fine. If
you're looking at bringing over all the formatting, frames, graphics,
etc., you'll have difficulties.
