Hi Manfred,

I work full time on the conversion of various document types to and from
OpenDocument format.  The best way I've found to approach this is simply to
use your favorite programming language to unzip the ODF document and launch
an XSLT stylesheet to do the transformation.  I think this was much simpler
than trying to rap my head around UNO.
