Thanks for this.  I circulated it to my research group yesterday and I
hope it convinces some to try.

You mentioning pandoc as one of the tools to use made me finally sit
down and look at it.  I am very glad I did.  Just today, I started
working on a paper that has to be in Word format in the end.  This is
always annoying but especially when the paper has mathematics in
it.  And this one does.  I learned that pandoc exports latex to odt and
docx including the conversion of equations.  I had not been aware of
this.  This is a real time saver so thank you again!

For me, org export to latex followed by pandoc to docx will be my
preferred route when I need to create Word documents (which luckily is
not that often), rather than using org's export to odt.
