Barry Campbell noted: <<there looks to be much better XML support than in Word 2003, though that is a feature that is probably of most interest to developers, and not most tech writers, at this time.>>

It's not really XML if it doesn't come with and use a DTD. Does Word 2007 actually make you adhere to a DTD, and can it validate a document against a DTD? If so, then it's a useful XML implementation. If Word 2007 only saves a document using HTML tags, it's not really XML other than in the loosest possible sense.
