Look into Help & Manual. It produces PDF and many online help formats
from a single source. It also uses variables and conditions to let you
use a variety of terms. Conditions support conditional text within a
topic, and you can specify which builds should include which topics.

It does not have all the formatting conveniences that Frame or Word
have, but it does the job.
