LibreOffice works great with Windows XP. If I create a document using
LibreOffice, 'Save As' Word 2007/2010 .docx, then go to My Documents and
double-click on the saved document, LibreOffice Writer will open the
document perfectly.

Please, please, please!
Never ever save as docx. This file format does not work with anything but WinWord. "OOXML" had been designed to fight the ODF standard with something absurdly complex with "open" and "office" in the name. Therefore these file formats should be ignored entirely. As long as WinWord supports .doc, there can not be any technical reason why a third party application should write .docx as long it is able to write .doc fairly well.
