I've run into some nasty issues in converting a manual from OpenOffice
to Word.
OpenOffice's conversion has some real problems.
Is there another app that might act as an intermediary?
- If I strip the OpenOffice file apart, could Frame open the xml?

Suggestions welcome, details of the issues available.
