I'm not sure how you are reaching this 
message.  Any .odt text document file is a zipped 
archive of a number of components, one of which 
is always content.xml.  If this component is 
genuinely missing from your .odt file, then the 
file is corrupt.  But it may be that, instead of 
opening the .odt file itself (as you should be), 
you are unzipping the .odt file and trying to 
open the content.xml file inside.  Open the .odt 
file directly instead.  (Have you perhaps 
associated .odt with your zip utility, so that 
double-clicking an .odt file unzips it instead of 
opening it in OpenOffice?  If so, the quick 
workaround is to open the document file from 
inside OpenOffice using File | Open... .)

This part is easy: OpenOffice does this well and calls this a "brochure".
o Set your single document to have A5 pages in portrait orientation.
o Create the document normally.
o Go to File | Printer Settings... | 
Properties... and set your printer to use A4 paper in landscape orientation.
o Go to Tools | Options... | OpenOffice Writer | 
Print | Pages and tick Brochure.  (Alternatively 
you can tick this in the print dialogue at File | 
Print... | Options... | Pages | Brochure.)

OpenOffice will rearrange the various 
(double-sided) pages so that you can simply fold 
the resulting stack of printed sheets into a brochure.

Sorry, but I do not write Swedish.

I trust this helps.
