Subject "A preservation hazard in OpenOffice"
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2013 13:49:00 GMT
Have you seen this:  http://fileformats.wordpress.com/2012/12/30/openoffice/ ???

(I'm cc'ing the author of that blog post, Gary McGrath)

This is from the perspective of a person interested in long-term
preservation/archiving of documents.

This looks like a feature that is working "as designed", although it
does obscure the fact that the image is linked, not embedded in this
case.

It might be worth having a web page, or a document, about best
practices for creating documents in OpenOffice that are free of such
external dependencies.   Could probably also use the ODF Toolkit to
scan documents to identify such issues in a document.

Regards,

-Rob
