Is there a word-2007 mode for emacs?
Antiword is a free MS-Word reader for GNU/Linux, RISC OS, and DOS. It converts the documents from Word 2, 6, 7, 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003 to text, Postscript, and XML/DocBook. Antiword tries to keep the layout of the document intact.
If you want to edit docx files, you can treat them as raw XML (docx files are a ZIPped bundle of XML files), which can sometimes be useful, but isn't acceptable for seriously engaing with the content. This could, I think, in principle, be launched from
Or you can convert them to Latex using docx2tex, which works pretty well, but loses some formatting.
docx2tex isn't packaged up by anyone, and if you are on Linux, you'll need to install some pretty up-to-date Mono libraries. Unfortunately, converting back again doesn't work so well: there are a few fairly limited Latex to RTF converters around.
That's not really the same thing as an existing
word-2007-mode, but the steps could all be automated in Emacs.
