Hi, Debbie,

I'm not quite clear on what the original problem is that you're trying
to solve. However, in terms of saving a Word file in .odt format, that's
fairly easy. I believe there's a native capacity to do this in Word 2007
SP 2 and beyond (http://goo.gl/1cSJt). Otherwise, for earlier versions
of Office, you can download and install the free plug-in that enables
Word to work with OpenOffice files:

gin-for-Microsoft-Office.shtml.

HTH,
Jim

I guess I'm out of my depth here. No one here knows what emacs is, and
Word does not allow saving in .odt format.

Any other SIMPLE suggestions? Theoretically Word lets me work in XML. Is
there any way I can do all this in Word 2007?
Thanks

Deborah

If you don't know emacs, some programmer-type person locally, already
known to you, is a rabid emacs fan. Find and befriend this person.
