Description rri0189 2005-01-04 16:20:18 UTC
(The XHTML filter may fix these problems, but on 1.1.4, on Windows, the XHTML filter is wholly broken--issue 39252--, so I can't tell.) Both OOo and modern HTML are designed to separate formatting from content. But, although OOo is aware of CSS, when saving HTML, it frequently discards information that CSS needs. Formats involving italic, instead of being implemented as <SPAN CLASS="formatname"> are implemented as <I>. Formats involving smallcaps, instead of being implemented as <SPAN CLASS="formatname"> are discarded outright, requiring tedious postprocessing with, e.g., NVU to replace the formatting.
