Thanks for that. It's not really important for me since I am using OO.o

Hmm, so antiword must be regarded as an interim solution? I noticed on the
bugtracker that the PDB importer has used some code from AbiWord. Wouldn't it
be possible to do this for DOC as well (And WPD)? AbiWord and KWord are out
there, and the importer doesn't need all the features, only text formatting
and paragraph styles.
