Hedley matey,

I am sure that this is NOT what you want to hear, but you really should
consider buying either Jeremy's MIFtoGO (or is it FMtoGO?) or WebWorks
Publisher 2000. 

I haven't tried the former, but from all accounts it works straight out
of the box (and is much, much cheaper than the latter). I have used WWP
in anger on multiple projects, in up to 14 languages (including CJK),
and it is quite brilliant. It also produces a range of HTML, HTMLHelp
and JavaHelp outputs. Worth every penny -- but, like Frame, there is a
precipitous learning curve.
