Hmm, I have not used the OO plugin myself very much but I just looked
again at the sample http://localhost:8888/samples/openoffice-writer.html
and there bold, italic and some other (like code, warning,...).

It depends on the style you apply in OO.

I am not sure about that, seems that someone changed it the wrong way,
since the above link shows that it is working fine.

That is why we have forrest specific style definitions in the samples,
but bold and italic are working fine.

Actually I just test it again and it seems that oo2 is responsible for
the problems you report. You are using oo2, right? Did you try with oo1?

Please test with oo1 and report a bug to our issue tracker that the
plugin is compatible with oo1 but not with oo2. Seems that oo2 saves the
styles and formating differently for sxw.

If you use oo2, then use the odt plugin.
