Concordia is not quite in the league of FM for normal publishing needs,
IMHO. However, if you are running X on your Symbolics, and you have
a machine anywhere on your network running FM 1.3X, you *can* run FM
on your Symbolics (as a client).

None of this, I suppose, is the point, since the original poster's
point about FrameMaker was just that more general-purpose S/W was available
on Suns than Symbolics. Although that was what the UX400 was intended
to address...
