It should if you have the same program installed in
your Windows 98 computer that created the docs in
Windows XP.

If a doc was created in Word, it should be able to
be opened and read by another computer using Word.

You have a choice in Word to save docs so that they can be read by older
versions,
and you have converters that should do the reverse and let older docs be read
by newer versions.

What version of Word do you have on the old computer and what version on the
XP system?
