I am writing an AsciiDoc backend to produce ODF files directly from
AsciiDoc. I was also looking for a flat file importer. Currently
LibreOffice and OpenOffice want to open such a .fodt (or .xml) file as
text rather than an pure ODF file.

I suspect it's a Windows version issue. I can easily open .fodt, .fods
in linux LO 3.3.4 & 3.4.3. Windows versions act (using the same test
files) do as you suggest and only open as text.

I am using Linux, however I found that the flat XML ODF files require an 
office:mimetype attribute to the office:document root-element. Not doing 
this will make LibreOffice (3.4.3) fail to open the document as ODF, but 
instead as plain text.

So adding:


did the trick for me !

I use Ubuntu & I simply right-clicked the file in Nautilus & selected LO
Calc as the option to open. That added the mime type to my mime data so
I didn't have to add anything.
