I tried to save Frame 4 files to .rtf and import to Word 6 and it was
genuinely messy. Text on the master pages was intermingled throughout.
I haven't tried the same maneuver with Frame 5 and Word 7, so I dunno.
I'm guessing it can be done--but not without tinkering with the source
a bit beforehand.

Last rumor I heard was that it would be distributed via MS Developer
Network CD "in the fall".
