At first look the file seemst to be ok.
Please provide an explanation on where one can see the error and/or attach a
screenshot of what you get in OOo.

in these screenshots first paragraph can be seen - these both are taken on 
windows. in on linux it looks like in on windows. unable to test 
in msword, though :)

Ah, now I see.
confirming issue.

The document looks like in OOo when opened with MS-Word viewer (running with
wine). I'll attach a screenshot showing the document opened in WordViewer
running on linux with wine.

MRU->MM: See characters like "Ā" or "Š"; they become "Â" and "Ð" after import in

mmaher->richlv: How was this doc file created? Was it exported from OO to word
95 format? I am trying to figure out if this might be a duplicate of issue 33074
Comment 10 richlv 2004-11-08 14:25:55 UTC
i'm almost completely sure that it was not produced with oo.og. i believe that 
it was created (and edited a lot...) with different versions of msword, and my 
guess would be that with some version of word it was saved as word95. 
unfortunately it's been a while so it would be pretty hard for me to find out 
who last saved the file (and then getting them to remember how/from what they 
saved it - impossible :) )

Set to target OOoLater due to lack of resources.
