That's what I'm doing now; I maintain my resume in xml, and use xmlresume
to generate the different formats.

My process is now

    1. Edit the xml file
    2. "make all"
    3. Open the RTF file in OpenOffice and then save as MSWord97

This is acceptable, but I gotta admit, it would be sweet if I could add 
a rule to the Makefile to generate the MSWord file, instead of having 
to do it by hand as an extra step.
