OpenOffice and XML

Tim Bray talks about the use of XML and XSLT in OpenOffice. Of particular interest is the notion of editing weblogs using OpenOffice and some sort of XML transform.

Seems there are three sets of similar tasks that should all admit to similar solutions.

  1. Editing weblog text.
  2. Editing wiki text.
  3. Editing structured documents.

Each starts with a different "logical" form and "renders" to specific representations. Wish I had time to hack around with OpenOffice and XML transforms...
