I am single-sourcing 2 paper manuals and one online help in one. The
online help is implemented in Webworks Publisher where you globally can
define what conditions to hide and what to show.

What do you suggest for the manual order number: Variables or
conditional text?
How do you handle conditions that only exist in some documents, to make
sure that you get the right output?

I have the following output combinations:

online + release 14
online + release 15
Paper + release 14 + variant a  (as either conditional text or
Paper + release 15 + variant b (as either conditional text or variables)

Some of the chapters only belong to the paper manual.

I believe that the foolproof thing is to import all conditions to all
files in the book and set the whole book to the various output

On the other and it seems a bit superfluos to have files with
conditional text definitions that are not used.
