Also, one simple direct means of getting XML into Word (easy, but the
styles don't generally persist well) is simply to use XSLT -> HTML,
which Word imports.

I've seen several resumes/book proposals that people did that way...

I'ts not unreasonable at all. You can convert your XML to RTF, which
Word will display. You won't have access to all the 7,562,443 features
in a full-fledged Word doc, but you can probably get by.
