Except for, they're usually not.  Good docs are thin on the ground.  The 
virtue of the Web was that you could figure it out yourself anyhow by 
doing a "view source".  That's the real test I'd want to apply to the 
MSFT offering or any other.  I've taken one brief look at the XML output 
from Office when it was at the alpha level; that first cut passed the 
"View Source" test.  Early evidence and not conclusive. -Tim
