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 more. 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. gary > -- > Bruce Cran -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org The 4.91a release of Jottings: http://jottings.thought.org/index.php _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
