Correct. That and the fact that wordprocessed documents are constructed
according to the skill of the author - look and feel varies quite a bit and
many authors seem to think that a wordprocessor is just a glorified
typewriter, and they construct documents accordingly - and that's why you
need to bring some kind of order to "chaotic" documents, which is what we
are intending to do with our schema, which will allow any document to be
stored as XML in a standard form.
