I've been playing around with the java-based ThinkFree Write (part of
ThinkFree Office, 30 day free trial, $50 purchase)
Although there are various things TF Write cannot yet do, it appears you
can input from all Mac OS X keyboards, Unicode and otherwise, plus the
Character Palette (BMP only, however), format in various ways, and save
results as .doc, .rtf, or UTF-8 .html files.
No luck with UTF-8 plain text or copy/paste, but still seems a lot more
capable than Word X.
I'd be curious what others think of it.
