You can think about WordML as RTF expressed in XML syntax. So nothing 
fancy and elegant, but much more easy to process than .doc or .rtf.

Word 2003 Professional also allow you to create XML documents based on 
your custom XML schema. However Word can not apply formatting styles to 
newly added elements, it will format document only on import. So this 
feature is quite usefull for filling-up forms, but not for structured 
document editing.
