If you write the files out as .fodt (Flat XML) files from within LO, you
will have straight XML files to compare.
Beyond that, you could get the tika-app.jar from the Apache Tika
project, which will let you extract plain text from the .fodt files and
directly from the .odt files.

Is it possible to have a diff between 2 .docx files in libreoffice? Or
with any other tool, I do not really mind...
I am not fond of office suites, but at my work they sent me an outdated
document describing what I have to do, and when I asked about some
"details" ( or errors, in fact ) in it, they sent me a different ( but
still with errors... ) version of the same document.
With a simple text file, I could have made a diff ( lot of tools for
that ) but I have no idea about how to do it with docx files. I have
obviously tried to unzip them, and use diff and meld on resulting files,
but those files are so messy, that I thought that, maybe, they are
encrypted of whatever!
Now that I think about it, I could do a diff of files made through a
copy/paste of the text... but that would be quite dirty.
Thanks for any suggestions.
