There is a Quark exchange format called XTags which is a
plaintext representation of Quark's internal format. I think it
was originally written to allow exchange of Quark files between
Macs and PCs. It's available as an Xtension, so if you can get
the documentation of the file format, it should be possible to
write a text-mode XSLT transformation to output an XTags file
which Quark can read in.

Failing that, write a transformation to RTF, which I think Quark
can read, or open the XML in WordPerfect/XML, do a stylesheet,
and Save As...Word, then open that in Quark.

Quark are apparently developing (may already have developed) an
XML import filter of their own, but I have no further
information. This would be a welcome change, as they have been
violently hostile to SGML-based systems in the past.
