I read the above and ducked over to the Framers mailing list to post
my first message in two or three years. It elicited this response from
the "Group Manager, FrameMaker Marketing" at Adbobe:

| Steven,
| FrameMaker is still being sold, supported, developed, and enhanced by Adobe
| and will be for as long as we can see into the future. I'd appreciate it if
| you could pass my comments on to the list where this subject came up. Also,
| if you know the software distributor who made the statement about FrameMaker
| I'd like their name also.
