Have working Word 2 import filter support for OOo at the moment, Fixes such bugs as the ridicously low 2535 id. The rather odd thing is the similiarly between such old versions as Word 2 and the contemporary versions. So close that some small refactoring of the existing filter and a few little translation shims and ta-da, word 2 support.
As an aside re-implementing the defunct winword 1 filter on top of the current ww filter should be rather easy, and allow that older code to be deleted, though finding some word 1 documents to see if they work would be something of a challenge.
Nice to see that google is apparently going to concretely help in OOo. Often vaguely wondered what stuff they used to read .doc/etc for their indexing and “show as html”. Be generally a good thing to refactor our msoffice filters to not be tightly bound to OOo so they could be usable outside of OOo. Plenty of work there for google if they wanted , could also help polish up oooblogger for blogger.com as well.
