    Hi Alan,

    I don't think our file format is currently XML-based. I am working with
    our engineering team to review our file format and the ways in which we
    import/export Microsoft Office documents, to see if there's ways we can
    more effectively work together with the open source community and
    projects such as Abiword (which I think is a terrific word processor, by
    the way).

    Eric Park,, the product manager for Hancom Office will
    be happy to help you obtain the information you need to import and/or
    export Hancom Word documents. Let me know if you ever need an extra
    hand - as a long-time member of the GNOME community, I want to make sure
    we help you guys.

    Please contact Eric directly.
