Im trying to make Word 2003 work with XML. I have already imported a schema and an XML file. The problem is that when I make a change to the XML file (from an external source like Dreamweaver or Notepad) the change doesn't show up in the Word document. It's as if I just cut and paste but with the pink XML tags. If there is anyone out there who can help me, thanks much in advance.

Oh I want to add that I do not want to use the WordML format. I just want the regular, plain old XML fomat to work. My goal is to have sections of a Word document containing XML island (data islands, whatever) but have those "islands" update when I change the source XML document.
