As I wrote in a previous message, I saved one of my documents as MS 2003 XML, and it was severely 
broken. A large part was missing, so this doesn't seem an intermittent bug, but something 

I just saved a document as MS 2003 XML and when I reopened it it was quite creatively messed up: broken headers and footers, bad fonts, weird vertical strips of text, ... .

I did a search for '2003 xml' at and found a number of old related bugs. The ones that I looked at had not had any attention for years except for annual checks that they still happen. It doesn't seem that it's a high priority. I hadn't even realized that there was such an export format.
