Fundamentals of Attaching XSD and using XML in Word Document

    Hi,
    I have some very basic questions about creating an XSD (or several) to
    use in structured documenting with Microsoft Office programs
    (Initially Word), but frankly the Microsoft approach to introducing
    and developing knowledge in this topic is the opposite of there.

    I have tried to attach the seemingly default action pack - not found.
    When I create a valid XSD, it won't attach.

    Its simple - I just want sections of my documents to be held in
    simple, portable, xml to feed ongoing documents further down a project
    cycle.

    I wonder, if I succeed and I try to save the content from the xsd I
    have created, will my content get lost in a lot of junk that Microsoft
    throw in for formatting (and obfuscation?)

    Is there a good start point for creating documents, sheets, whatever,
    so that the reasonable goal of having a formal document with content
    managed via xml (e.g. to facilitate project documentation) can be
    achieved without having to accept steep learning curve which would
    take me away from my primary function and into the realms of
    supporting microsoft product knowledge in the work place?
