Well ...

I tried to create such a document, and found that neither "Definition"
nor "Important" are pre-existing styles, so I created such styles and
then marked up some sample text accordingly.  I then saved it as XML.
There is little doubt that the XML captures the markup used, but I
would hate to have to be the person to write the XSLT to convert it
to TeX.  OTOH, I'm sure it's possible, if you have sufficient determination :-)
