Definitions from Jabber.org:
Services (aka Agents)

Services are a critical piece of Jabber. Transports, a subset of services, are the processes that "translate" from Jabber to other systems, such as ICQ, AIM, Yahoo! Pager, and so forth. If you would like to add transparent connectivity for any Jabber user to another real-time messaging service, use a transport. This includes adding any additional protocol functionality such as RVP, IMPP, or otherwise. Services also cover additions to the server to provide real-time "information source" such as stock quotes, weather alerts, etc.

Another significant possibility with services is if you have a real-time service already with clients, and want to provide the features of Jabber to those clients. By connecting your server to the Jabber network as a service, all of your clients immediately can communicate with the rest of Jabber as well as utilize any of the other services. This is an excellent approach if you want to write a 100% secure closed real-time messaging network and still provide connectivity with other services.

LyX is "an advanced open source document processor." I have heard that LyX is either currently using or plans to use XML as an internal document format. I'm just starting to research this.

Here is a quote from What is Lyx:

LyX conspicuously lacks a filter for importing MS Word documents. The LyX Team considers this not worth the effort, as word processors in general are moving away from proprietary formats to the open XML standard. So, as long as you need continued access to legacy documents, you should retain a traditional word processor, e.g., Corel's WordPerfect for Linux.

Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 Specification. Here is the abstract:
Abstract

This specification defines the Document Object Model Level 2, a platform- and language-neutral interface that allows programs and scripts to dynamically access and update the content, structure and style of documents. The Document Object Model Level 2 builds on the Document Object Model Level 1.

The DOM Level 2 is made of a set of core interfaces to create and manipulate the structure and contents of a document and a set of optional modules. These modules contain specialized interfaces dedicated to XML, HTML, an abstract view, generic stylesheets, Cascading Style Sheets, Events, traversing the document structure, and a Range object.
