What you might want to look into is FrameMaker+SGML. This is FrameMaker with
SGML support: you create documents using a structured template, then do 'save
as' to convert to SGML.

(One caveat: SGML requires some real work to implement, and it can be a
nightmare to convert large documents from Word into SGML -- although there are
scripting tools out there to do just that. For more info, check out the web
site http://www.sil.org/sgml or the newsgroup comp.text.sgml)

FrameMaker+SGML 5.5 now also has support for saving as HTML. So once you have
the SGML structure, the HTML conversion is relatively straightforward.
