XML standards are pretty flexible.

There re some _major_ markup issues involved here.   My suggestion
would be to create a template with OSIS markup as paragraph and
character styles. Then write a program that converts those styles in
the document to OSIS.

FWIW, the OSIS team concluded two or so years ago that it would not be
possible to create an OOo2OSIS or OSIS2OOo filter, for various
technical reasons.  [IIRC, it has to do with the model that OSIS uses
versus the model that OOo uses.  (Strem v Object).]


Does your Office Suite conform to ISO Standards?
