Yes absolutely. Documents form a spectrum from highly structured to very loosely structured. For highly structured documents a lot of efficiencies can be gained by making the structure explicit by using an XML schema notation such as RelaxNG or DTDs. For loosely structured documents editors that use XHTML or OpenOffice as their native file format are excellent choices.
For general purpose editing of loosely structured electronic documents, I recommend OpenOffice (open source).
