I agree. We are a UNIX house and our group has already abandoned FM for HTML when it comes to online help. We are just starting to look at moving to XML for document production. I expect that sometime in the next two years we will complete the shift and abandon FM entirely. Don't get me wrong, I like FM. However, times and needs (and support, it seems) are changin'. If FM doesn't meet our publishing needs we'll find a product that can.
