It might depend on one's work habits. I like working from the
doc and building an index. It sounds like you prefer to work
inside the index and adding markers to the doc.

Frame's hyperlink capability doesn't help when you don't have an
index. There aren't any links.

So... perhaps we should agree to disagree. Howeveh, there's one
thing we both agree on.

Interleaf isn't worth the bucks. Or to put it another way: I
absolutely LOVE working on Interleaf - because someone else is
paying me bucks to work on a terrific DTP that _they_ paid for.

I like cutting deals both ways....
