What we're uncertain about is creating the templates
we'll need and moving all our existing docs into FrameMaker.
1. There will be FrameMaker VARs in your area who will develop templates to
order for you. They will (not suprisingly} expect a fee for this service.
2. Adobe, at
<http://www.adobe.com/prodindex/framemaker/tempseries/main.html> have some
example templates (Packs 1 & 6) that cover several types of books--these
templates can be downloaded for free. The templates come with detailed
descriptions, and are a great way to start learning about how FM templates
(and book) work.
