PDF and HTML out of FrameMaker via a batch: If on Windows, and your individual documents SAVE AS to HTML and PDF exactly as you want them to...
You could use my freeware tool DoBatch. It can save as HTML, and it can save as PostScript - you would then need to distill the PostScript, which can be batched in a number of ways. Of course, you have to be careful about links from one PDF to the other... If you don't have to worry about external PDF links, then you can do this easily and cheaply. (Well, the cheaper, the more difficult, and vis versa. But that's in compliance with the laws of thermodynamics and Conservation of Energy, isn't it?)

Windows also has DZBatcher, which most likely can do this. On UNIX, I believe you can do this with fmbatch. On Mac, use AppleScript.
