Conditional Text in Word with XML data source

I have a potential client that is using an ERP system called Priority which produces various documents such as invoices using a Word template with mapped XML fields.

Sometimes they will produce a single document, sometimes it is a batch.

They want the document to say different things depending on the data.

If this were a Word mail merge I would use a If..Then..Else field in the mail merge, but they tell me that isn't working.  I guess that is because they aren't running a Word merge.

Can you use IF fields in this XML situation, if so how?
