I used it with NeoOffice which is a native OpenOffice Java port for  
Mac. Until OOo 3.0 there was no native Aqua version of OOo for Mac,  
only X11 versions.
Seems NeoOffice has adopted OOo 3 features like XHTML export. OOo  
3.0b2 has too now.

Yes, right, they are at the end of the html body block.
I will try to do something with it.
