Yes, that is how FrameMaker works... you simply apply a conditional =
style to the appropriate text, then choose what conditional text to show =
or hide. I wrote a whole set of books and used this feature to produce =
International English and UK English versions from one set of source.

Framemaker is designed to allow you use conditional text. I haven't =
it yet, but I understand that you simply apply conditional tags to the
text (you could use tags that identify the variants as well as the =
functionality). When you are ready to edit or print the document, you
simply identify which tags you want to see or print.

Hello from Austria,

We are writing paper-documentation and online-help for a product that is
delivered in several (20 or so) different variants and with a bunch of
additional options. All of these variants have a great amount of
functionality in common. So we don't want to write and maintain seperate
documents for every variant. Our idea is to have a big overall document
can be configured according to the customers needs and printed on =
Our question is: Does anybody know of a tool that can help us to manage
task? We are currently working with MS Word 6.0 and Doc-to-Help 1.6.1
(probably upgrading soon) so it would be nice if these tools work

Thanks in advance!
