Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-746) Integrate MSWord content in Forrest
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2006 09:02:39 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-746?page=comments#action_12372654 ] 

Ross Gardler commented on FOR-746:
----------------------------------

I have a local plugin that uses OOo to convert the MS Word document to OOo and then uses the
OOo plugin to convert to Forrest. It works, but it as code in it that cannot be committed
to Forrest due to license issues.

I am willing to donate this code to anyone who needs it (under the most permissive license
legally possible - which will be Open Source), even more willing if they would provide a home
for it at somewhere like Sourceforge.

> Alternative approach, which works for all version of MS Office,  is to use OOo as a server
to convert to OOo and then use the OOo plugin.
