Showing XHTML text in Word 2007 with the formatting via webservices

What i am doing is to pull the data from a CMS and import it to Word
2007 Beta and i also have to export the data from Word 2007 Beta back
to that CMS. We have with us two Web Services of the CMS. The Web
Services are explained as follows:

IMPORT WEB SERVICE:

1) This web service pulls the entire data from a particular page
of CMS and returns an XHTML string.

2) I use this web service to grab this XHTML content in a string.
The code to achieve this is given below:

String newEntireRichContent =
objwsRichContent.GetRichTextContent(frmServer.auth enticationToken,
node);

"objwsRichContent.GetRichTextContent()" is a web service method
which takes 2 parameters i.e. the "authenticationToken" and
"node". Here "node" is the page number. Based on this page
number the web service returns the entire text on that page in the form
of XHTML string. I take this content in a "string" variable
(newEntireRichContent).

3) Now I create a Word Range object as follows:

Word.Range currentRange =
Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection.Range;

4) After making the word range object, I assign the XHTML string
to it as follows:

currentRange.Text = newEntireRichContent;

5) Now,what I get on the word document is the origninal
text,something like this:

<p align="left"><strong><span style="COLOR: #ff0000">Synkron Via CMS<br
/></span><span style="COLOR: #008000">This is a new text for services
page.<br /></span><span style="COLOR: #0000ff"><em><u>The main idea
behind developing this text is to test the web services.<br /><br
/></u></em></span></strong></p><h1>FORMULA<strong><span style="COLOR:
#0000ff"><br />(a+b)<sup>2</sup>=(a<sup>2</sup>+2ab+b<

and so on.....
6) But what I want is that instead of giving pure XHTML string. It
should be able to present the data in a formatted way based on the tags
present in the XHTML string. For example the heading tag should present
the data in a form of a heading and not with <h1tags. the texts
between the <b></btags should be bold and so on.

7) Once import is implemented properly I want the same to happen
with the EXPORT functionality. In the export functionality it should
take the data from Word 2007 and then convert it into properly formed
XHTML string.

Could anybody please provide some help that how this can be achieved ?

I'd try posting this to microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.csharp.
It's a much more active newsgroup, and you'll probably get some help
there.
