When Edit|Changes|Record has been turned on, changed text is displayed in red,
deleted text isn actually deleted but shown in strike-through. 
This information is lost when saving to HTML. I can see no good reason for that
because the text becomes unreadable (you don't know what belongs to the old text
and what to the revised version).

So this is a request to save the information about Changes in HTML export.

This issue is re-assigned to Christian Jansen for further evaluation.
Comment 3 christian.jansen 2002-01-03 10:33:56 UTC
Good idea. But an additional feature should be implemented. If track
changes has been turned on and users coose "save as Webpage" users
should have the possibility to  switch between exporting with tracked
changes or not.

As HTML exort is no a Q-keyfeature, this issue is considered for OO.o later.

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

Bug was replicated using Mac OS X version 10.9 and Open Office 4.0.1 Build 9714.

The steps necessary to replicate the bug are as follow:
1) Launch Writer from Open Office
2) When the text document appears write the following: " Creating words is a magic tool for success and for imagination"
3) Go to Edit->Changes->Record. This turns on the Changes features
4) In the text delete "words" (Notice how it does not delete, but makes "words" with strikethrough).
5) Type right after or before "words" the following : "ideas"
6) Now save the document and choose format to be .html
7) Once you save it, close all OpenOffice and look for the HTML document you just created
8) Right-click on the file and choose Open With->OpenOffice
9) You should see no color for the changes you made, yet you see "words" and "verses" are still there.

Thanks for reporting the bug. I do have one note while doing this is that the color for changed text was not red yet a gold color. This might be due to the build version, but the bug is still there. This bug should be fixed.
Thanks for the report.

Hope this helps
