There is an option for having everything in one Open Office XML "flat"
file (similar to Ms-Word's XML format). But if all you want is the text of
the document it is handy to have it in a separate file ("Content.xml" for OOO).
For more on OOO and MS-Word's XML format see
A more practical demo will be given by my student, Tim Wilson-Brown, in his
talk "E-Publishing Scientific Papers: Conversion of Word documents to an
XML-based format" at Open Publish 2004 in Sydney on Friday 30 July
