There is no formal way to apply conditional text in Word, but it's fairly
easy to accomplish. You can use a combination of color coding text or
graphics (Format | Font | Color), and then searching for and selectively
hiding text/graphic of a particular color. The method used by Doc-To-Help to
do this is a good example. They have added macro routines for toggling on
and off a particular condition/color, and then assigned these macros to
shortcut keys. If you are indexing with Word, you will also have to
carefully disable any conditionally hidden XE fields.
