Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (FOR-746) Integrate MSWord content in Forrest
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2006 11:38:35 GMT
That'd be extremely useful to me Ross. I'm running a small (sub) site
which uses MS Word docs as source. At present - having not worked out
the command line Office conversions, and with Ooo's diminishing
support for the old swx format, I'm stuck with manually converting the
docs into swx. Would a way around the license issues be to present it
as a 'cookbook' - not include the proprietory code?
