Export to Word

I need to take form data from an web page and export it to a Microsoft Word File. I have a bunch of form data in HTML which I can convert to XML/JSON. The users will click 'Export to Word Template 1, 2, 3, etc.' and the website will create a .doc file for them to download depending on the template / look-and-feel they select. Can I do this with non-Microsoft technologies like javascript and Python? The key requirements here is the ability to export the same data to different layouts. I have a feeling I can do this with XML / WordML, but the formatting piece looks daunting. What is the easiest way to do this without hooking into COM?

Attacking my URL

How do I prevent hackers from embedding scripts into my site's incoming urls. For example, a hacker can easily create a link like link with javascript to ultimately grab users cookies. How do I prevent this from happening. Can I use javascript to prevent this, or is this something that need to be prevented on the server end?

Closure Exposure

Can someone please explain javascript closures to me in plain english? Closures for Dummies makes me feel like a dummy. What are closures and why would I want to use them? And most importantly, what is a real world example of where they would be really useful. I have no formal CS background, so if you mention CS terms I might get confused.
