That is exactly the info I need. As I posted, I only have one .odt file
to test with, and I have deleted all "left-overs" for that one.
I will see to MANIFEST.RDF and image files (didn't know .odt has those).
I had better see if I need to include image files in the output file, but I
will have to find one with them included to see how it is being linked.

My (only) test file did not include boldfacing, underlining.
It did have font specifications (many, many) but never used any in anger.
I will hold leading whitespace in reserve for the moment.
I need to see these things "in the flesh" in order to hack my way through

Can you email me one with these features ? Or point to one ?
