But that's almost completely pointless since no .doc file generated
in one version of word ever renders the same way in a different version
of word, so I don't know how you tell if OO is rendering it "right"
(I have observed this at work when the HR department sends us
word documents with forms we are supposed to print, fill out,
and send back to them and every version of word we try makes the
forms look even more absurd than the one before :-).
