I also tried odf-mode with little joy.

I think it could probably be improved.  And, I think this would be
useful to do -- working with some reasonable subset of ODF would be
useful, if not perfect.  I think some other ODF editors also only handle

One problem is that ODF is very large and has a lot of things that are
difficult or impossible to display in Emacs.
