In a thread titled OOo conversion to XHTML for CMS import, we learn a few things, like OpenOffice.org documents (ending with .sxw) are zipped, and you can upzip them and there’s XML and images in them thar files!

More importantly, we learn that people are finding ways to get documents parsed and into other systems. I mean, we did this in the past, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say that they need some sort of “Microsoft Word to CMS conversion/importer” and then there’s much hand-wringing and thought and discussion.

I often forget about OpenOffice.org because to me, office documents just aren’t as exciting as other things, but I’m glad there are people working on it, and who knows, someday I might find office documents totally fascinating!
