The only markdown in the ooo-site is just added. ooo-site/trunk/templates/topnav.mdtext.

The approach to the html is as follows:

Extract the html in the <head> and in the <body> using sed then these are injected
into ooo-site/trunk/templates/skeleton.html

In the the case of ooo-site you will see all html. If the html doesn't display then the extraction
has failed. In the most recent case it was because the <body> tag was continued to a
second line.

Any html page may be replaced by markdown by adding page.mdtext and removing page.html.
