when working as a consultant ('95-'96) at the Big Company i was
explicitly told _not_ to use Frame. it was beeing replaced by some sgml
tool (probably SEIF, but the name eludes me). the only possible
exception was if a project, as a whole, would be faster to do if using Frame.
given the amount of Frame experience inside the Big Company, SEIF have
(had?, since i do not see it around here) a very steep uphill battle to
fight.

fwiw, i liked SEIF.
