You could probably just use the word processor and save it as html.

I would/do use a simple text editor and just code the html.

EDIT: oops forget to include examples:


I like vim but YMMV

There appears to be some kind of HTML help file generator a LOT of different people are using? It creates a table of contents and lets you build pages. Each page at the bottom says "Prev, Up, Next or Home". Do you know what I'm saying? It is always Linux apps that use this style of help pages. There is no way they are coding this by hand.
