Are you using Frame on UNIX or otherwise? If UNIX try writing a script that
could make it easier. Mark text in word with certain symbols at start and at
end. convert to rtf or text. Script finds symbols and replaces with mif strings
appropriate to the tag. convert mif to normal frame.

If it's going on a web, why use Frame? Use HTML. HTML, by the way, could be an
intermediary between Word and Frame.

Now that I think of it, what version of Frame are you using? There are filters
for word to frame conversions. Have you tried them and had problems? If your
engineers were using Word templates with the same tag names, this could help
you, too.

Hope this gives you some ideas to go on.
