doesn't support equations or embedded graphics in any WP-Win file
format, let alone in WP-Mac formats (there's some work being done
this summer as part of Google's Summer of Code to get WPG graphics
Although WP-Mac's Word 6 and RTF filters are both old and cranky,
they seemed to produce workable results on a simple sample document
when I imported the respective Word/RTF output into NeoOffice (based
on OOo 2). It's unfortunate that doing a two-step conversion through
Microsoft formats seems to be required, but that's probably the best
option today to capture all of the elements in an editable format.
