If I understand correctly, the graphics for HTML must be in JPEG or GIF
format. When you create a graphic in Frame using their tools, they are not
in an HTML recognizable format and the Frame conversion to HTML function is
not currently able to do this for you. I also have this problem - manuals
full of graphics which are a combination of BMPs (usually screen grabs of
dialogue boxes) annotated with Frame drawing tools. A quick and easy
procedure to convert to JPEG or GIF would be wonderful.
