"The XML output by this application is very straightforward and very similar to the
HTML output by Word itself, but it fully accounts for all styled text, tables, and
lists. "


This solution provides a starting point to build an XML parser for Word documents.
In addition to the XML functionality, it discusses how to build custom objects to
handle sequential instances of all styles and graphics and how to loop through
tables and lists. Remember, documents shouldn't be converted to XML merely for the
sake putting them in XML. The best document to convert to XML is one that makes use
of styles and will be reused in other ways."
