Hi, Gerry!

Although FrameMaker does have an HTML conversion capability, it is not
particularly robust. WebWorks Publisher, on the other hand, is definitely
industrial strength. Publisher can generate online output from Frame in HTML,
HTMLHelp, WinHelp, and JavaHelp. It is not particularly easy to learn, but has
the best tool suite available on the market today.

Hope this helps,
Craig Sanders
