Of course there are formatting problems with OOo when opening some MSO
documents... but, in my experience, OOo has *less* formatting problems
across all different versions of MSO than MSO itself does.
In other words, Office 2010 *will* have formatting problems with
documents in older versions... and OOo often does a *better* job in many
of those cases.
What I would like to see is a web form/system dedicated solely to
improving the LibO <> MSO filters - ie, for reporting problem documents.
Just a text box for describing the problem, and a 'Browse' button to
locate the file for upload...

Sounds like a good candidate for an extension...
