Join me for this free 90-minute eSeminar, specifically designed for FrameMaker unstructured users, as well as MS Word users, who are considering migrating their documents to a structured authoring environment using Adobe FrameMaker 9.

Migrating your existing unstructured FrameMaker documents, or Microsoft Word documents to Structured documents in Adobe FrameMaker 9, is much easier than you may think, and the benefits include the ability to enforce authoring consistency, guided authoring, real-time validation and others. In this 90-minute eSeminar, we will explore the differences between unstructured and structured documents, and the overall process of using conversion tables in Adobe FrameMaker 9 for wrapping unstructured styles into structured elements, as well as basic DITA concepts in FrameMaker.

Here are the specifics and what we will cover during this 90-minute live eSeminar:
