office plugin in c#


I don´t know if this is a totally silly questin because I really don´t know much about the topic. So excuse me if I am wrong.

I want to write a plugin for microsoft office.
In fact I want to write it for visio. It should be some kind of html exporter (I can´t use the one from microsoft)

Of course I could write it in vb(a) but there are two things I don´t like:
1) The user can mess up the program by manipulating the source
2) I can´t use the visual studio ;-)

So is it possible to write and design a program in C# using the visual studio (I´ve seen that it is possible to add some com
components to a solution) where the output is a plugin for visio (or word or whatever) - And this plugin is safe from manipulation?

Thanks for any ideas about this unfortunately very general question!

Few additions to nicholas' post:

If you are working with the office 11 beta, the Visual Tools For Office[1]
beta is open to the public currently, that provides templates and such for
word & excel programming in vs.net 2003 & Office 11.

If you are using office xp, microsoft provides a set of Primary Interop
Assemblies[2] to use that should simplify your interface implementations , as
they work better than accessing the com objects directly. The office 11
PIA's are included on the installation disc.

(watch for wraps)
