The most popular is Adobe Acrobat + MSOffice. Historically, though it would have been FrameMaker.
However, you can also use Office 2007 + their own "Save as PDF" plugin to produce this. I believe that the latest versions of OpenOffice will also write out a limited set of structure when saving PDF and I believe the PdfTeX folks are also working on support. (and there are various other options as well)

Oh, I was not aware of the semantic feature in PDF 1.7
(it tells that the logical structure facility was already
introduced in PDF 1.3). Thank you for pointing out my
misunderstanding. What is the most popular workflow to
generate such semantically structured PDF?

HOWEVER, it is optional and therefore many PDF documents do not contain the necessary elements. And, as pointed out, without the presence of such elements already in the PDF - the best you can do is GUESS.
