Hi everybody,

since there now is an Alpha Version of NeoOffice 2 which is based on  
OpenOffice 2 and supports the OpenDocument format, I started playing
around with tex4ht a bit. My main motivation is to get my PhD thesis  
in a form which can be handled easily be non-Latex users. I don't  
know yet if my publisher supports LaTeX and I'm also thinking far  
ahead of possible translations into other languages. After a bit of  
tweaking I actually managed to generat a swx file which NeoOffice =20
could open. At the moment, this file doesn't look so nice: No  
graphics have been imported, strange things happend with some special  
characters and the first letter of every bibliography entry was cut  
off. I'm sure that I can improve the result, but I wanted to know  
from other people who have experience with this setup: Is this a  
working solution for long, complex documents, is it actually worth  
totry to finetune my document?

is generally accepted, 'don't fly too high', or whether it might also  
be thought of as: 'forget about the wax and feathers, and do a better  
job on the wings." Stanley Kubrick
