Can anyone tell me how they compare?

We are using MS Word 2003.

We would like to seamlessly import it into a tool that can do
single-sourcing, multiple output.
We need html output (so that it can run on Linux) as well as PDFs.

I tried AuthorIT and liked it even though it is not perfect. (I tried Flare
but not RoboHelp)
I liked the way I could do the "round-trip" (import Word and export it with
relatively satisfactory results).
I was disappointed to find out that you cannot create a hyperlinked PDF
directly from AuthorIT (is this correct?). Actually, I was unable to
generate a PDF at all.

I don't know much about Webworks and would like to find out more.

Can anyone tell me about AuthorIT, about Webworks, and if you know, how they
