Many years ago (well, at least in computer years) there was a program
called Markup that did this, from a company called Mainstay. But it
was ahead of its time -- required too much learning and effort to use
in a time when networking was in its infancy, and just moving
files around was a problem. I suspect both the company and the program
are long dead. At least I haven't heard anything about them in recent
times. (The version I saw was a Mac program, BTW.)

They did have a cute T-shirt with proofreaders' symbols on it, which
was about the only useful thing I ever got out of the program.
