I don't have experience with MS Word but I have been looking into using 
OpenOffice (an open source package not all that different from MS Word). 
OpenOffice has some built-in support for DocBook but from what I can 
tell it's a bit clunky and it does not support the latest DocBook 5.0 
standard as far as I can tell. It would be god to get input from others 
on this list but from my very limited experience in this area it doesn't 
seem like MS Word and OpenOffice Writer are well suited to write DocBook 
files unless you can limit yourself to a  restricted set of styles using 
a template.
