XDocs works with your schema. So the output looks like however you 
defined it to look!

Word can _either_ use WordML _or_ your schema. That said, WordML "just 
works" and using your schema is more effort...perhaps too much effort. 
But to some extent, that's the nature of XML tools in general, not Word 
in particular. It's mostly a matter of degree.
