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.
