Above example works fine with the new exporter.

Old exporter is pretty much on the way out and I would strongly
recommend that you use the new exporter as much as possible.

    (require 'org-e-odt)
    M-x org-export-dispatch RET

That said, this is what happens.  I will accept any suggestions for
possible fix or blindly apply a patch if one would circulate that to me.

Step 1. 100m^2--1000m2
Step 2. 100m^2&#x2013;1000m2
Step 3. 100m<text:span 

Step 1 to Step 2 sounds good.  This happens as part of

Step 2 to Step is not OK.  Note that the "&" that introduces the `ndash'
gets pulled in as part of subscript.  This happens as part of

Now `org-match-substring-regexp' which goes something like 


looks like a swear word to me :-).  Frankly, I don't know or care about

I am not sure whether there is a bug in that regexp or the regexp is
doing the right thing but that a `org-protected' property should be
applied to some part of the string that is undergoing transformation.

If someone can make sense out of what is happening and if I happen to
trust the other person's judgment, then this bug has some hope of
getting addressed.  Otherwise, this bug will remain un-fixed.

But, I am sure what a ndash is doing in a Math expression.  May be it is
a minus-that-is-aspiring-to-be-a-ndash, I don't know.

Anyways, try the new exporter.  

One warning though:

Make sure that you require ONLY ONE of org-odt and org-e-odt in your
.emacs.  If you require them simulatneously org-odt will not be usable.
There is some error which I haven't had time to investigate.
