Flare may be a good choice for what you're doing. Go look at for more details. But it will easily let you keep
those docs in Word, if you need to, and still generate the outputs you need.
It also has conditional tagging, which will help with the customizable

Also, I noticed that Help and Manual is a lot less expensive than
Framemaker, personally I like Help and Manual and for what I am looking at
doing, think it will work. It will also probably be an easier sale to the
boss, since it is cheaper. Is there any serious flaw in Help and Manual that
anyone has discovered that might make it smarter to try and get Framemaker?

One more question, right now the documentation I have is all done in Word, I
would bring this documentation into whatever product that I get, how easy is
this to do?


Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
