Hi :)

[1]  The way i see it going is much the same as the newsletter at my work.  People will probably 
start by using MS formats, then they may find the older MS ones work better and then find the ODF 
are a vast improvement.  

Our  original newsletter was made in Word 2003 as a Doc.  Sadly, with all the logos and even just a 
couple of photos it would crash plus occasionally error messages would appear.  Buying Word 2007 
and moving it to DocX stopped the error messages but it still crashed and the older machines 
couldn't handle it at all and it looked different on different machines.  Moving to LibreOffice 
made it easier to move pictures around into more interesting layouts.  Starting afresh with a new 
Odt took it to the next plateau.  Now the images in the headers and footers line-up.  The Table of 
Contents is clickable as are all the logos and photos.  Plus all the usual improvements such as 
greater consistency throughout, bullet points that line-up and don't change size randomly, number 
lists that manage to keep count without skipping or duplicating numbers yada yada yada.  The older 
machines handle it happily and it looks the same on every machine whether booted
 into Ubuntu or Windows despite them both using different versions of LibreOffice.  

[2]  Can we copy that plugin to our own Extensions pae so that we don't lose track of it?

Regards from
Tom :)

[1] At the same time ODF goes down the drain because many commercial and non-commercial software 
projects do not get any support in supporting ODF.

[2] For MSOffice users another option is still available, despite the efforts that have been taken 
by Oracle to remove it from the scene:
