You would not be able to use any program that is not on the computer.
If you use a program on another computer remotely, it is still on the other computer.
You will not be able to create documents, or open documents on the XP machine.
Also, what you are asking borders on illegal pirating.

(You should have a disc or a download of Office)
It will work on XP just the same as it does on Vista.
I know this because I have had to reinstall Office 07 and had problems with the registration. During my phone call to Microsoft I was asked how many machines I have this version of Office 07 installed on. I told them 2 machines, and asked them how many I was allowed, to which he replied "3".

This is true if you have a multi user license.
Legally, per Microsoft, you can install the copy of Office you own on up to 3 machines.
The OEM that comes with a machine is not a multi user license.
For a single use license the program may be installed on one machine.
If you download Office 2007 and try to use the key code for your OEM it will not work.
If you bought a packaged copy of Office 2007 student and teacher you may install on three machines, this only applies to a packaged version of student and teacher.

Remote desktop does work with Vista, but I believe it does not work with XP home
Please go here to read about Remote desktop.

Hope that clears the air
You cannot use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Home Basic N, or Windows Vista Home Premium. You can, however, connect from those editions of Windows Vista to computers running other versions of Windows.
You cannot use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows XP Home Edition.
If you are using the above operating systems than you cannot do it by default.
