        i'm still lost.  i've read the wiki page and don't see anything very
        instructive, and i've found your opendoc url and don't understadn mucg

        my source files, all 66 chapters, are in plain ascii with the asterisks
        indicating italics.  once or twice i did something like

        % swriter ch35

        and some or all of the *words* were boldface.  nornally, OO just printed
        "*words*".  i have a non-public program, atom, that turns acsii into
        markup.  it would turn "Hi *there*" into <left quote>"Hi
        <i>there</i><rightquote> ... so if i can point OO at my html/xtml file
        and wind up with a correct *.odt file, that would work.
