To all who are having trouble converting Word 7 files to Framemaker 5:

It helps to rename your Word styles with the Frame style names before
Most things import OK, but tables sometimes disappear during
conversion. In addition, heading numbers can become corrupted (a
heading 2 may become heading 3, for no obvious reason), and on occasion
a heading may actually disappear.

Moral of the story: You have to check the Framemaker file for problems,
but it's still a hell of a lot better than typing it all in again, or
importing as an ASCII file!
