      I'm wondering which would be easier, a Word to XSL-FO converter, or an xsl-t
      chained transformation that converts the OpenOffice 6.0 .sxw formats
      content.xml into a (pure) XSL-FO? I've noticed the fo namespace is
      referenced in the root node, although it's only used for some things, such
      as fo:font-family="Thorndale".
