Re document conversion problems, in general if the document is good in Word it'll typically be good in If there are Word documents chock full of tabs to make text indent and other formatting horrors, that'll be a problem in OOo. I've got some conversion tips on page 12
(page 22 or so of the PDF itself) here. The batch converting tool can be useful too and is documented on page 11 of the same document. It creates an copy of all MS docs in the directory you point the converting tool to.


I wasn't clear in my request. Documents created in OO.o have to be opened in Office, too. It isn't a one-way street. So OO.o users need to know the pitfalls to avoid so their slides look okay when shown at a conference using PowerPoint on someone else's system, to take one example.
