I have done some work on OO integration, I have Writer and Impress files 
working with basic formatting. Basically, I have extended the work you 
did and am extracting style information from the sx* files as well. What 
does this mean? We are not restricted to using a particular template, we 
simply use the normal formatting rules.

Of course, the problem with this is that the content could have a 
totally different look and feel to the main site. Do we see this as a 
major problem?
