I've added the pristine 'forrest seed' version of openoffice-writer.sxw to this issue. This
is the file I used to create the openoffice-writer.sxw file I modified (should've given my
modified file a different name... sorry!).

As I mentioned, the only things I did, was extract the styles.xml & content.xml files
from the original 'forrest seed' version of openoffice-writer.sxw, then copied and pasted
'Heading 2' portions to create 'Heading 3', 'Heading 4' and 'Heading 5' sections.

Then, in content.xml, I similarly copied the 'Heading 2' portions to create 'Heading 3', 'Heading
4' and 'Heading 5' sections.

Then I created a zip archive using the Mac OS X built-in 'Archive'. Perhaps the Mac OS X version
of ZIP does something differently.

I hope this sheds some light on the subject.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-311
    Summary: OOo Headings bug causes Forrest to fail
       Type: Improvement

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Minor

    Project: Forrest

   Reporter: Charles Palmer

Environment: All

There appears to be a bug or feature in OpenOffice which affects how haedings are stored as
XML. It appears that if a virgin document is opened then all headings are stored in <text:h>
tags, but if an existing document is opened that lacks a particular haeding style, then if
you create that heading style it is stored in <text:p> tags.

This causes Forrest to mis-interpret headings, as the Forrest OOo XSL file identifies OOo
headings by looking for the <text:h> tags.

You can reproduce this effect as follows:
1	Create a new text file.
2	Create 20 lines of text, one of each style Heading 1-10, with a "default" format line between
3	Save this file (as "head.sxw" for example), unzip it and examine its content.xml. You will
see that all of the headings are of the format:

 <text:h text:style-name="Heading 5" text:level="5">Heading 5</text:h>

4	Copy head.sxw this to headless.sxw.
5	Open headless.sxw, delete the Heading 5 line, then save and close the file.
6	Reopen headless.sxw, and add a new line where the original Heading 5 line had been. Change
the style of this new line to Heading 5. 
7	Save this file, unzip it and examine its content.xml. The new line of style heading 5 is:

  <text:p text:style-name="Heading 5">New heading 5</text:p>

So ...

So perhaps openoffice-writer2forrest.xsl should reconsider how it matches headings. Instead
of the current:

  <xsl:template match="text:h[@text:level='1']">

maybe it should match text:h or text:p with an attribute text:style-name="Heading 1" etc.

(Hopefully I will work out how to attach the .sxw and .xml files so you can see these examples
