openoffice xslt
Hi Jimmy,

I would choose OpenOffice.org 2.x.

OpenOffice.org 2.x uses the OpenDocument XML format, which is shared by multiple applications and recently become an ISO standard.

Word 2003 uses wordprocesssingml, which does not support all Word
features and will be exchanged by Microsoft Office Open XML in Office
12. But the format will still be a mapping of the application model in

In OpenOffice.org you are able to add an XSLT filter, that embed into the Office with a simple typedetection. By this it becomes possible to selection your new file type by doubleclick or drag & drop.

In Word 2003 you may choose explicit the XSLT stylesheet before save,
but you are not able to attach new filters to Word 2003.

Finally, as OpenOffice.org is free you will have an easier access to customers.

For further suggestions for OpenOffice.org, you might contact the OpenOffice.org newsgroup: openoffice.xml.dev (more info on http://www.openoffice.org/mail_list.html)

PS: I tried to be objective, but beware I am working on OpenOffice.org. ;-)

thinking of using OpenOffice 2.x Import/Export Filters or Word 2003.

Has anyone ever tried to do something similar with any of those two? Which one
did you prefer and why?

I've seen so far that when using OO it's easy to code an import and an export
xslt and implement those through the filter options.
I haven't found something like that in Word2003 - so I would have to save the
file as a WordML and do the transformation outside of word, right?

Thanks for your input
