Cannot reproduce with my Word 2003 XML file (see attachment) - opens fine in OO
2.4.1 and OO 3.0. Please provide your sample - maybe there's a difference
between Asian and Western XML files.

Difference from the two attachment is, that in the second one the drawing object
is inside the MS's so-called drawing canvas. This makes the Word xml import crash.

Changed target to "OOo please help" as I need help from the community!

The Office 2003 filters are no longer maintained by myself. My priority has
shifted to the ODF file format and the ODF Toolkit project (e.g. ODFDOM) and
even MS is working now on OOXML instead of their old XML 2003 formats, therefore
Sun has been implemented and is now supporting the OOXML import filter with OOo 3.0.

PS: You might want to check this issue with OOo 3.0 and the new Saxon processor..

Kind regards,
