I haven't yet used FM for generating help files because it is
*excruciatingly* cumbersome. We are working around that limitation by
exporting to RTF and opening in WinWord, then using RoboHelp to
generate .HLP files. We have to go an extra step to get the files to
UNIX, but that's not your situation). Even though it is cumbersome to
export to RTF and use another platform to code the help, it still is
faster than using markers in FrameMaker.

I'm interviewing for a job where they intend to produce some hard-copy
doc in Frame (which I'm comfortable with), but then have someone else
do on-line Help in RoboHelp or Doc-to-Help with *Word*.

This surprises me, and isn't the way I would go; am I missing
something? Are those various other Help tools (which I've browsed at a
workshop or two) somehow better than Frame? This would be for Windows,
incidentally -- maybe that's significant.
