The fastest, most comprehensive way to master FrameMaker 6.0!

If you've picked up a recent textbook or technical manual, chances are very good that it was created with Adobe FrameMaker.

Users proceed with self-paced lessons in FrameMaker, using images and files from the CD-ROM. Developed and tested by the training experts at Adobe, readers come away with a thorough understanding of FrameMaker's tools and features.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Seems like it's been forever since the last FrameMaker update, but for millions who swear by FrameMaker's ability to build highly structured documents, Version 6.0 was worth the wait. Whether you're an upgrader or a newcomer, Adobe FrameMaker 6.0 Classroom in a Book is the fastest, most efficient way to master FrameMaker 6.

Straight from Adobe Press, FrameMaker's publisher, this book covers all the bases -- and focuses heavily on the features that make FrameMaker special. For example, there's a full chapter on conditional text -- great for building multiple data sheets and other documents where most content is common, but certain elements must change. Adobe has improved (and simplified) Frame's book creation features, such as indexing and tables of contents -- and these are covered in detail as well.

Another lesson covers hypertext and PDF (Frame now includes Acrobat Distiller, so you can build structured, hyperlinked PDF files from any document). Adobe has souped up Frame's HTML generation features by incorporating Quadralay's WebWorks Publisher Standard Edition; this book shows how to use it to export HTML files, refine the mappings between conventional and web documents, split a document into multiple web pages, and more. (One thing we'd have like to see that's missing: a little XML coverage.)

Adobe FrameMaker 6.0 Classroom in a Book is designed for hands-on learning: each chapters consists of projects utilizing files on the accompanying CD-ROM. If you need to get comfortable with FrameMaker 6 in a hurry, it's all you need. (Bill Camarda)
