Is your "Framemaker XML" in the Forrest document format?
As Clay said, see the Samples in the demo application
which is delivered with Forrest. You cannot just try to
force Forrest to read any structure. That said, if you
do have documents is a certain structure then Forrest
can be configured to use it. See the "advanced" section
of the "Using Forrest" document.

It depends who the author is and their skills.
I definitely use "vi" sometimes. Other times i use
a proper xml editor such as "XXE".
for the variety of "XML editors" that people have
reported using.
