I need to read and interpret a MsWord document, using the WordprocessingML format.

The w:fldSimple elements are field elements, and the w:instr represents a instruction text.
An example:

<w:fldSimple w:instr="AUTHOR \* Upper \* MERGEFORMAT">
      <w:t>Peter Vogel</w:t>

Here are other types of intructions:
REF _Ref153184475 \r \h  \* MERGEFORMAT
REF _Ref167694000 \h  \* MERGEFORMAT
SEQ Example \* ARABIC
SEQ Example \* ARABIC \s 1

Do you know a website that explains how to interpret the instruction text?
For instance, REF means a reference to a caption.
What does \r and \h mean?
