Description russellmcormond 2002-08-05 19:05:49 UTC
There is a plug-in to AbiWord that allows import/export of files.
 I believe it would be very beneficial to have offer a
complimentary filter.

There may be some updates to the XML schema, so some coordination between the
two teams should be appropriate.  Ideal would be if the different schemas could
be auto-detected.

This previous request for Abiword support was closed as wontfix

hopefully this request will be considered more carefully now that
Abiword has stablised as 1.0.x

I think we should be interoperable with other major open source apps.

My two cents:
Most of the infrastructure for XML import/export is in place, and one
'only' needs to write XSLT stylesheets for the import and export
logic. These could easily be tested and developed 'dry', i.e. outside
of the actual office. There is an example (for DocBook) available on
the page.

Considering the previous wont-fix for the other issue, I doubt that
Sun will do this. But why not find someone in the community to do it?
The AbiWord schema seems reasonably simple. I'll be happy to give
advice, but I won't take this on myself.

what is the current status on this? Is this only relevant for Word 
Comment 8 ajorge 2003-09-11 16:33:04 UTC
With the news of Koffice switching to the OOo file format, maybe what
should really happen here is that Abiword should make the switch too.
Comment 9 horkana 2003-09-11 17:26:51 UTC
paraphrase ~ Abiword should switch ~

This thread and the links from it explain why that is highly unlikely
to happen for the forseeable future.

Abiword is working towards supporting the comlicated OpenOffice file
format and it would be nice if OpenOffice could import at least the
some of the basic formatting* of an abiword document which is
relatively simple in comparison.  (* Even as much as the text with
line breaks and bold, italic, underline would be fantastic).

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
