FrameMaker 6.0 embraces XML and other formats for Web output

The FrameMaker 6.0 publishing application from Adobe Systems Inc. can output book-length documents in Extensible Markup Language as well as in Adobe Portable Document Format and Hypertext Markup Language.

FrameMaker 6.0 runs under Microsoft Windows 9x, NT, Windows 2000, Mac OS, SunSoft Solaris, Hewlett-Packard HP-UX and IBM AIX.

A free beta version of FrameMaker 5.5.6 for Linux is downloadable from
