Our company follows a similar route in that the online doc (PDF and HTML) is
included with the software, but the user can request a printed version at no
additional cost. We use Frame to Save As PDF and Quadralay WebWorks to
generate the HTML. The HTML still requires a bit of tweaking, so it's not
strictly "single source," but overall, this approach works very well
(speaking for myself at least).
