I am working on a Frame2html filter. I have a working version, which
I intend to make available in a while on the internet. The filter
makes use of a number of products. I think all of them are available
on the net.

The filter generates a table of contents automatically. It handles
FrameMaker books as well as files and makes a hierarky that copies
the Book hierarky.

Pictures are handled as well as tables. X-references in the Frame
documents become html links in the html documents.

The filter can be easily modified (one file that links Frame tags
to the internal tags of the filter) so that the filter can take
any Framemaker file.

If you are interested, I can give you more information, or send
the filter to you at a later stage.
