That's right.

The process above works really well because a CV is a very structured
document. But it wouldn't work generally.

Another point is that if you open an HTML file in Word of OpenOffice
they seem to get stuck treating it as an HTML file. That's no good. I
want real OpenDoc files.

And anyway... that doesn't help me edit an OpenDoc file that someone
else sent me or stored in a repository somewhere.
