I believe the desktop publishing tool called Scribus is what you are
looking for. It is a full-featured desktop publishing tool similar to
Quark Express. Once a page layout template is made, one simply copies in
text and pictures. It does not generate HTML, however. It is designed to
submit for real paper printing. So the PDF output is very good.
