You might look at Mif2Go, if you haven't lately.  It does both of
those things, and in fact everything that ePP does with FrameMaker,
and more.  (ePP can also process other XML sources, and Word source 
docs, which Mif2Go does not; we're FrameMaker-only).  Mif2Go is also 
a lot more affordable, way faster, and we think produces better output.
Try the free unlimited demo, and see for yourself:
