When, I try to open a XAML document that is generated with Word 2007 XAML Generator form a non English version of MS Word (Dutch) I get the following error.

System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: kan de bron met de naam {Normal} niet vinden. Bronnamen zijn hoofdlettergevoelig

English version of the error:
System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: Can find the source of the name (Normal). Source names are case-sensitive.

I can fix the problem by hand as following:

  • Open the XAML file in notepad.
  • Changing all the Normal word in<Paragraph Style="{StaticResource Normal}"> with the original style name from MS Word <Paragraph Style="{StaticResource Standaard}">
  • Save the document and view the XAML file again in IE en the problem is solved.

It seems that the standard MS Word style Normal is the only one that gifts the problem.
