Which version of Word are you targetting?
If 2003 it's fairly straightforward to make a simple version of what you want in Word, save as XML, and use that as the basis for your stylesheet. The WordML SDK gives you more information on schemas etc.


I need to be able to send to any recent Word user.

I do not have Word, and the web site above requires you to be licensed to find out more.

I have since found that Open Office may be the answer: it can of course save in many Word formats.

I guess I can work through learning how to generate the OO "content.xml" file, use a simple set of the other files (gotten from an example) and zip it back up, read in OO and save as Word.

Any advice would be much appreciated. I have very very simple formatting: just a few font sizes, italics and such: that seems quite simple in the "content.xml". Even footnotes are pretty transparent.
