I've got to produce a quite a few documents (perhaps 16 or so). The documents share a number standard sections. For example, each document will have a common Introduction, and each will include a section on Security Architecture and Threat Models.
I planned on putting those shared sections in separate Word documents, and then combining or merging the Word documents à la carte to produce a larger document.
I know DocBook, and I know how to combine separate books/sections into a larger book. In this scenario, I would have a separate XML file for each topic, and then include them in the various books. DocBook will handle the Table of Contents, Section Headers, Index, etc.
How do I combine or merge multiple Word docs into a single larger doc? I'm especially interested in a way to do it from the command line so I don't have to fight with UI's.
What software is used to do this on the Windows platform?
