I need to extract content for a given page inside a doc. By content i
mean header, footer, footnotes, comments, main text from body.
I need to have the option of extracting each of these elements of the
page separately (extracting header for page X, footer for page X, body
text for page X) and not just getting all the content as a single

I've uploaded a doc that i found on your svn to use as an example here

Using the example doc and assuming that i need to extract content for
page 1, i'd need to extract:

    _ header ("ODFDOM in a header")
    _ footer ("ODFDOM in a footer")
    _ footnotes for page ("ODFDOM in a footnote")
    _ main text and all additional content in the page body (" ODFDOM
in a title ODFDOM in a section header ODFDOM in paragraph1 ..."
