At, the original file fails:

Ah! Now that's what I needed. Didn't know this service existed, this will help a lot! Thank you very much for the pointer.

The document is NOT conformant ODF1.0!


doctest.odt/META-INF/manifest.xml: Error: The file 'Configurations2/ accelerator/current.xml' shall not be listed in the 'META-INF/ manifest.xml' file as it does not exist in the ODF package 'doctest.odt'! doctest.odt/META-INF/manifest.xml: Error: The file 'Thumbnails/ thumbnail.png' shall not be listed in the 'META-INF/manifest.xml' file as it does not exist in the ODF package 'doctest.odt'! doctest.odt: Info: Generator:$Linux OpenOffice.org_project/680m1$Build-8990

OK, I've been changing the manifest.xml file to reference only the files that actually were in the document and it got better. But now I have an error that I don't understand:

doctest-bis.odt/mimetype: Error: There shall be no extra field for the 'mimetype' file of ODF package 'doctest-bis.odt'!

What does that mean? The contents for the mimetype file is just:
What's wrong with that? Or is the error elsewhere?

BUT: the document now opens in LO 3.5.4 without being reported as corrupt! So, I guess the problem is solved, even if I'd like to know anyway what the error above means.

For the record, here is what I had to do:
Put the mimetype file in the archive at the first position. This seems to be mandatory in any ODF file. Delete the settings.xml file from the archive, as it seems it is not really needed and can cause some problems. Write a correct META-INF/manifest.xml file, referencing exactly all the files in the archive and no other. Make sure all opening tags for all XML documents included the same ODF version. That was quite easy in my case, since I just had to copy the version from the template document. With all this, the document opens without problem in all versions of all OOo-based software we could test (including LO 3.5.4, IBM Lotus Symphony 3.0.0 FP2 and OOo 3.1.1).

Looking back at it, it is actually quite surprising the former versions opened the file without any warning, since the META-INF/ manifest.xml file in it was completely wrong. The newer versions really seem to do the right thing here.

Thanks a lot again to all who answered.
