Description farshad 2006-11-11 22:16:38 UTC
Some Excel files which are created by 3rd party tools (using biff5 coding) are 
correctly displayed in MS Excel, but when opened in OO Calc all of the font 
attributes (italic, bold, etc) seem to completely disappear.

If you want a sample XLS file to reproduce the problem I can provide you one if 
you contact me by email.

Confirmed with build 680_m197.

Noticed that if you open the MS Excel file manually, save a copy and then reopen
it in Calc the formatting is correct.

the attached document is Excel 2.1 based. This filter isn't developed any longer
but Daniel will have a look at it and try to fix it.
