The AND does this as a normal part of its workflow, since some of the
external referees are not willing to work with anything other than Word
documents, so we have to generate them from the XML of our entries. Though
XSLT can be made to output RTF (as can some commercial file munging
applications) there's no need to do so. We simply transform to html and load
the html into Word 2K(well, Open Office Writer 1.0.1 actually). From there
you can save as a Word document. Very straightforward, and once the (pretty
simple) XSLT is written, a grad assistant can do the whole thing simply by
firing off a shell script.
