Well, there isn't anything saying you have to use *emacs, it's just that
Xemacs ships with indented-text-mode which does all this mostly
automagically.  I know the idea has been tossed around for a different
notation being used, perhaps even something similar to what Emacs uses
in Outline mode (which I use enormously):

* Heading 1
Text under heading one, this is a long line.

** Heading 2
This is test under heading two.

THis heading has two paragraphs.

*** Heading 3
Another heading leve.

As you cansee, it's pretty easy.

How do you mean? If you mean decode it on the fly into HTML, nope... but
it can certainly serve it back out as application/x-msword or whatever.
