It is fairly easy to go from Page to Frame. In the Page doc, click in the
text/frame/flow. On the File menu, click Export (I am doing this from memory
so work with me here) and click RTF. This menu option only appears if you
have the cursor in the frame/flow/text. The rest should be obvious. Name the
file and then open the RTF in Frame. You will have a lot of retagging to do,
