Got this from the scratchpad area, not sure if you consider that 2.0-pre3 or
something else. When using the org.apache.poi.hdf.extractor.WordDocument class
on the Word document at
I get lots of errors like this when I try to view the resulting xml:

Location: file:///tmp/liz.xml
Line Number 40, Column 193:><fo:inline font-family="Arial" font-size="10pt"
color="black" ><fo:inline font-family="Arial" font-size="10pt" color="black"
><fo:inline font-family="Arial" font-size="10pt" color="black" ></fo:block>

We are in the middle of a complete re-write of the Word stuff. I don't plan on 
carrying over the xsl:fo. Instead I was planning on replacing it with some 
kind of generic xml that could be transformed to fo. If its important to you, 
look at the code you have and take a crack at it. Sorry.
