I am not trying to give advices to solve the problem, treat what I write
as a question... I just do not understand one thing... I would think
that the solution for this kind of task would be to create an XML schema
(or use something existing - docbook?) for your kind of documents and
just convert it for typesetting engine, be it TeX, FrameMaker or
Scribus... The conversion can be done by a script. I know it is simple
for TeX, and from what I read I would not expect it to be difficult for
FrameMaker (conversion to MIF file) and Scribus (XML). I do not know the
internal format of these tools, so maybe there are some problems I am
not aware of...
Then you would never have to play with manual settings...
Do I miss anything?
