One great thing about FP is that you can program your own add-ins using VBA to get around any challenges it may present. I havn't done this myself, but several free add-ins ara available from Jimco [jimco.com], including one that automaticall deletes the proprietry "made by FP" tags. He also has some very useful things like save all, close all, slective publish, and so on. Some of them were I believe integrated into FP2002. Worth a look.
