While I haven't needed to create 'object oriented documentation' in any jobs
I've worked in, I have heard about various packages that let you go "more
modular" than is logistically possible within Frame's standard features.

The one that I actually remember is the one that was presented at our STC
chapter, called Canterbury, gives you paragraph-, sentence-, and even
word-level control (if you want to get that granular). So if, for example, a
dialog box has different capabilities depending on what parts of the whole
application the client has bought, you can tag the individual
paragraphs/sentences/words that deal with those dialog box parts.

The first web site that I ran across that resells Canterbury was DigiPub (it
sounds familiar...aren't they an advertiser on this list?), at:
