At the moment, to import WordPerfect documents into Déjà Vu X for
translation, I use a workflow which, though it works well, is
sometimes lossy (WP -> OOo -> DVX -> OOo -> OOo's own MS Word export
filter -> WP) - especially when there are tables and such in the
original. But Déjà Vu will happily eat XML. Be great to be able to
simplify the import/export.
