Doing the text pulling from COM is *SLOW* to say the least,  You'd probabnly
be better converting them to RTF and then using something like OmniMark to
convert to XML.

That way you'd have the best of both worlds, including something you can
render to HTML when zDOM/zXSLT becomes a reality.

I already do this and it's fast enough at the conversion, a 500k doc takes
about 2 seconds.
