I suggest you use XHTML, and stick to a basic valid subset of it. HTML can be 
placed on the web (naturally) and can also be imported into MS Word and other 
word processors. It's the universal standard.

Note that some word processors may bork on the HTML if it has an XML 
declaration (e.g: <?xml version='1.0' ?>). So just remove it and it will be 
imported fine.

95% of the programmers consider 95% of the code they did not write, in the
bottom 5%.
