Thanks Piet,

your knowledge on the matter is really helpful!

Seeing your advice I can only imagine how many errors my templates

Just two questions:

- How do you validate your FODT files?

- Do you have a preferred documentation reference for generating FODT

I think that the error UI is not correctly describing what is an XML
error and it should prompt a more specific error message (for example
"Cannot save malformed XML") and maybe a technical detail could be
outputted to in the console.

I submitted the following bug report:

Maybe this issue is impacting even other users.

You should put the table-related styled (style:family="table*") inside the 
<office:automatic-styles> rather than the <office:styles>.

<office:styles> is meant to be used for named styles that the user can select through the user 
interface, for example the Styles and Formatting side bar, or the Styles menu. The user interface 
doesn't have named table column, row or cell styles. On the other hand <office:automatic-styles> 
is for styles that are directly set in an object.

With these changes (and the corrections to the XML in my previous message), it works.)
