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.
