Why should you switch from Interleaf? Framemaker does not come cheap and you
would have to learn a completely new software system.
I have used Interleaf 5.4.1 for DOS for quite some time. Shurely, it is its own

change? Interleaf on PC hardware is cheaper than the UNIX versions and you
could continue to use all your old documents.
