Re:  MS office XML
Does anyone know or have ideas about what XML enabled Office 11 actually 
means?

I can't imagine Office having a concept of validity and behaving like a 
true XML editor.
It's easier to envisage  being allowed to define tags (like styles) and 
markup text such that the output document can be appropriately tagged. I 
just can't see it properly handling IDs, IDREFS, ENTITIES, encoding etc. 
etc.

There is a hint of this in the following article

Am I being too cynical?
Justin.
