You've come to the right place...  ;-)

We haven't noticed any benefits.  OTOH, we haven't found
any problems either.

A groundless fear.  Mif2Go works fine on Frame 6.x.  We
use it ourselves for test-file production.

Um.  Well, if you can't tell these very different sorts of
problems apart, you can always ask us.  Your multi-seat
license at Dictaphone entitles you to email support and
upgrades for the rest of this year (to 12/31/2000).

We don't use RH ourselves; Mif2Go has so much built-in
support for WinHelp, HTML Help, and JavaHelp that we've
never found a need for any other post-processing tools.
Mif2Go produces files totally ready for compilation by 
the free Microsoft (WinHelp, HTML Help) or Sun (JavaHelp) 
compilers.  And if you tell us what added features you 
need, chances are that we'll add them on the spot... most 
of our enhancements are the results of customer requests.
