Description mjevans 2004-06-06 01:46:05 UTC
Exporting a Writer file containing endnotes to HTML leaves the endnotes missing.
 For all intents and purposes, that means it is impossible to compose academic
papers and post them on the web.  Note that Microsoft Word 2000 and higher
perform this function correctly, although oversized superscript numbers in the
HTML make it ugly (Microsoft should have used size="-2" or somesuch).  I'm not
sure whether this item belongs under filters, or bibliography project, or where

The endnotes are still there but on a an HTML page *2* which is not really HTML
view compliant.
Viewing the file in a browser, everything is ok.

No, they are not there.  I just ran another test.  The endnotes are completely
missing from the xhtml exported file.  I examined the file by hand using a
stand-alone text editor.

es. This seems to be a serious issue. Can the priority be increased ?

This problem is still on in OOo 2.3!!!!. I attach a short file with three
endnotes. You can see that while the odt and the pdf has the endnotes, the xhtml
file do not. I generated the xhtml file by export to xhtml. Note that by "save
as" on html file also keep the endnoted. Here is the body of the xhtml file
(from export):

<body dir="ltr"><p class="Standard">New Document </p><p

The body of the html file (from save as) is much different:
<P STYLE="margin-bottom: 0cm">New Document</P>
<P STYLE="margin-bottom: 0cm"><A CLASS="sdendnoteanc" NAME="sdendnote1anc" HREF=
"#sdendnote1sym"><SUP>i</SUP></A>AAAAAAA<A CLASS="sdendnoteanc" NAME="sdendnote2
anc" HREF="#sdendnote2sym"><SUP>ii</SUP></A>SSSSSSSSSSSS<A CLASS="sdendnoteanc" 
NAME="sdendnote3anc" HREF="#sdendnote3sym"><SUP>iii</SUP></A></P>
<DIV ID="sdendnote1">
        <P CLASS="sdendnote"><A CLASS="sdendnotesym" NAME="sdendnote1sym" HREF="
        <P CLASS="sdendnote"><BR>
<DIV ID="sdendnote2">
        <P CLASS="sdendnote"><A CLASS="sdendnotesym" NAME="sdendnote2sym" HREF="
<DIV ID="sdendnote3">
        <P CLASS="sdendnote"><A CLASS="sdendnotesym" NAME="sdendnote3sym" HREF="

This is a very serious bug. I am using OpenOffice to edit an online openacess
journal, Verniana,, and use export to pdf and
xhtml to generate the galleys (I separate the xhml to body and css for display).
Howver, the fact I cannot use endnotes is very disturbing. I have to change all
the automatically genetrared endnotes with normal paragraphs with a manual
