The reason for this document not working correctly has nothing to do with LO and its capabilities or lack thereof. Brian covered a number of workarounds, but the primary one for it not working and the supposedly editable fields, if we all observe correctly, is that the document opens from the web, in LibreOffice as a "Read Only" form, no way in hell it will allow input in this state. And I have just tried it on my wife's laptop running MS Office 2010, it does the same i.e. "Read Only". This is the fault or intent of the webmasters with this document. And I tested this in both Linux and Windows on my system with LO.

From what you are saying, you clearly think that the web site is that of the original publisher of the document. But no: surely the questioner had this problem with a local copy of the document and posted it on a web site himself to make it available to list subscribers for testing and discussion. (I'm guessing he was originally sent it by e-mail.) We can't blame the originating company for that aspect of any difficulty.
