Oops.  The above has a couple of problems:

1.  Blueberry Filtrix does *not* support RTF either for input or
output.  It *does* support Word's native format for Word 2, 6, 7,
and 97.  Whether it offers any improvement over Frame's native
import filter is another question, one we'd rather not answer.

2. Our Mif2Go filter, formerly mif2rtf, goes only *from* Frame to
RTF, not the other way.  So Filtrix is certainly "more capable"
in handling Word to Frame, because we don't do that at all... ;-)

If, however, your concern is how to support on-line help while you
migrate from Word to Frame, you do *not* have to keep up your Word
files to do that.  Once you get into Frame, we do provide a fast
and easy way to get from Frame to on-line help, including WinHelp
(RTF) and HTML-based help.  See our Web site, which is really at:
(not omnisys) for the details on Mif2Go, our $295 solution that
includes a year of free upgrades and unlimited email support...
