Honestly, I'm not getting paid to sing the praises of WebWorks Publisher
(although I should probably look into it). However, having used HTML
Transit, Frame's native HTML filters, various export and rework schemes, I
haven't found anything that's as robust and customizable as WebWorks
Publisher. It has templates for vanillla HTML, DHTML, Quadralay's own
cross-browser/platform help format, MS HTML Help, JavaHelp, and WinHelp. You
can customize any of these templates or develop your own. Right now, I'm
using it to generate context-sensitive help using a combination of HTML and
a client's proprietary scripting language.

Mind you, it's not cheap, but if you have a lot of work to do, WWP is well
worth the price.
