We deliver DocBook documents in MS Word format.  Some parts of the
audience need the content in MS Word so we publish DocBook > HTML > MS
Word.  It's a one-way conversion.  We do not take changes made in MS
Word and try to push them into the DocBook source.

This is a relatively recent publishing requirement so we are still
solving small problems.  Overall, the technique we are using works well
and the resulting MS Word files are in good shape.
