Hi Mark

Well this link works for me, just now

The guide is a little old, but for the most part should still be valid.

There are links on that wiki page for pdf and odf formats of the same
gide, HOWEVER, the content in the wiki pages is IIRC more current then
either the pdf or odt file.

As for openofficetechnology, they have been around for a good while. I
can't comment from personal experience, though I can say I've only ever
heard good things about them.

I'd be remiss to not mention that Apache OpenOffice is made up of many
parts, documentation being one of them, and these all require
individuals to help or things simply stagnate. This admin guide is a
good example, there is a great opportunity for someone to take the time
and update the wiki pages when needed. While at this moment any time
donated getting the odt source file in synch with the wiki pages would
certainly be huge boost to the project overall.

Best wishes,
