Last I checked, the latest versions of Word for both Mac and Windows use
an XML-based format (a ZIP archive containing XML files, with a .docx
extension), which I'd certainly call "user-visible source".

The Word source format (.docx) is Unicode-based. The text in .docx is
stored using UTF-8, so there is no need to use escaping using numerical
entities. I recommend you google for UTF-8 for more details. Wikipedia
has a good article on it.
