Chapter 3. Using WordprocessingML > Endless Possibilities - Pg. 103

CHAPTER 3 Using WordprocessingML While learning WordprocessingML can be fun and interesting in its own right, what's really exciting is the prospect of being able to process the information in Word docu- ments in new and fresh ways. No longer are you confined to the world of VBA and the Microsoft object model. In fact, you're not even restricted to using Windows. Once you save a Word document as XML, you can process it using any tool or environment that supports XML. And creating Word documents with such tools is a snap. This chapter explores some tools and potential applications for WordprocessingML, with an em- phasis on XSLT. Essentially, what we present here is a mini-cookbook of XSLT scripts for WordprocessingML.
