I appreciate the clarification. Your method is very useful to me since I 
frequently have to work with people who know nothing but Word and since 
LibreOffice doesn't deal well with some of the poorly formatted DOCX files I 
receive. I've been experimenting with some sample files, and your method works 

I know this is a lost cause, but I dream of the future in which document 
collaboration is done using only text files.
