"This exactly the problem I have :(. The user manual has been created and
maintained in MSWord. It is an old manual so I couldnt really plan as to
what tool would suit me better. I don't really have a choice :(."

ComponentOne's Doc-to-Help uses Word as the source documents so you won't
have to redo the old manual other than clean up the text (they always need
cleaning up) and adding the conditional text tags. I've done it before to a
number of old and new Word docs without to much trouble. Checkout their
website and click the Doc-to-Help button.
