Hi, tech whirlers,

Pls advise on the pros and cons of using Word instead of FrameMaker for
printed documentation.

From our point of view, the immediate benefit of using Word instead of
FrameMaker are:
1. Currently, there are no Asian versions of FM. Standardizing on Word
would mean that worldwide loc offices can all work on the original
documents that HQ
has created.

2. Word is also a good platform for generating WinHelp and HTML.
Eventually, we
probably should standardize on HTML as this will mean one consistent
interface for
the user instead of three different online solutions: WinHelp, Acrobat
and HTML.

tks... merci... gracias...
