This is not just a FrameMaker problem. When I worked in the U.S. for
a Japanese company, we exchanged PageMaker and Word files with our
Japanese offices and frequently saw this inverted TIFF problem. Their
files originated on a Mac and we were reading and using them on PCs. We
never knew if the problem was a cross-platform one, or because they
were using Japanese Word or PageMaker. (We also had some pretty
interesting font problems that we were pretty sure were an
English/Japanese system problem.) The only way we could solve the TIFF
problem was to ask for the TIFF files separately and then replace them
in the document file ourselves. I hope someone can shed more light on
this TIFF problem.
