AbiWord is another (the third?) open source word processor that will use
an XML document type for its ntaive format. One interesting thing about
this one is that it is intended to be portable between Unix and Windows.
That means that it is at least theoretically possible that a large,
heterogeneous corporation could standardize on it.
