 <h1>How to submit your professional services listing</h1>
 <p>The Apache OpenOffice project offers a list of relevant practioners of interest
to Apache OpenOffice users.  No endorsement is implied by these listings.
-If you would like to have your listing added to this page, please observe the following instructions
and conditions:</p>

file.  If you are not familiar with XML, please 
-        submit the equivalent information in a post to the ooo-dev list and we can help you
format it for submission.  But your listing will appear faster if it is submitted

+    
     <li>Listings must be factual and specifically relevant to OpenOffice.  Generic
IT services companies without a specific offering on their website directly relevant to OpenOffice

         would probably not be a good fit for these listings.  In other words, if your website
is not mentioning OpenOffice, why should our website mention you?</li>
-    <li>The Description field is limited to 512 characters and must be plain text,
with no embedded markup or images</li>

     <li>Listings must not imply approval, endorsement or affiliation with the Apache
OpenOffice project or the ASF.</li>
