Except that now Word and the rest of Office is evolving into XML authoring software.

Furthermore, the publishing industry works in a much less controlled
environment than your typical corporate data provider or consumer:
book authors and freelance journalists tend to work from home, on
their own systems, and full-time journalists in the field have even
more limited computing resources available (sometimes just a
Blackberry).  Publishers can reasonably expect authors to install and
maintain their own copies of Word (or OpenOffice) at home, but they
cannot expect the same for XML authoring software.

All the best,
