Description mr_emu 2004-08-11 20:38:15 UTC
Test scenario:

1. Open attached Word97 document in OO 1.1.2
2. Save it under another name as a .doc file.
3. Open it in *either* OO 1.1.2 or Word97

Defect:
Table formatting causes the text to be misaligned compared to the original.  

Discussion:
While the formatting in the original document is perhaps a bit odd (the table 
borders and padding are not regular), it illustrates a problem with 
interoperability between OO and Office.

I cannot rproduce the problem by using the attachment as "original". Could you
please attach a screenshot which illustrates what's happening on your machine?
Thanks for supporting us!

Correction to my original third step in the test scenario:  

The copy saved in step 2 opens fine in OO, but in Word97 it produces 
misalignments as shown in attached screenshot.

MRU->MM: This only happens when the exported ersion of the attached sample is 
opened in Word97. With Word2000/XP/2003 this looks good. Word97 does not have an
UI for inner cell spacing in tables. Can you see a kind of special tag in the
file format, that WW97 can understand this correctly?
