> Why? And what is a better MS Word-editable format? (since that is what required by editors in the magazine where I work and in my university) ODT isn't really mature yet and didn't get any proper support in MS Word. DOC is closed. .WPF then? (since it is actually supported by nearly all MS Office versions).

RTF is too baroque: look at it's most recent standard version

To create a less sucking word processor, one need to start with a less
sucking doc format.

For legacy stuff I'd rather rip off the OO importer bits (afaik Google
uses them in Google Docs as well).

Kind regards,
