Hi Frank,

Finally got back to this. Can you check this for me against an .fodt file, please?

perl -pi'orig_*' -e 's/<text:alphabetical-index-mark text:string-value="[[:alpha:]]*"//g'

I mentioned sed and grep, but don't see any reason why perl couldn't be used
as well. If you test this and it works, please post back to give others
another option.

BUT: my sed command only removed the markers from the fodt. As I mentioned I
was unable to convert the odt to an fodt (essentially uncompressing the odt
to readable xml) using the unzip capability of my OS (as I'm pretty sure
could be done with earlier open office documents).

Since LO can easily write and read fodt files, though, it really wasn't
necessary to do any file format conversion, and I didn't bother spending the
time to figure out how to do everything in one shot.
