convert odt or .doc into html


Is there any freeware to do this. Ideally it should ignore the fact that the context within the file is formatted using styles. |It does contain an image within a file. Is there anyway I can strip them out and save them as gif or jpg. Copy and pasting is just fucking boring

You can save as HTML in OpenOffice. Any images are saved in the same directory as the HTML file.

I'm looking for the same thing. I have created a tool that will properly format the html files the way I want. All I have to do it right click the folder with my html files and it creates a new folder with all my formatted files.

The problem is, I can't spend the time to open each individual .odt file and convert it to .html when I have over 1000 files.

Is there a tool or script available that will do such a thing? Or a way I can write one?

I know there is wvware that can convert from Word to Html, dvi, PS, PDF, text.

For converting between OOO formats and others you can try:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/unoconv/
I've never tried it before, so I don't know how good it is.

found one called JODconverter.

http://www.artofsolving.com/opensource/jodconverter

That link is to some basic info and it has a link to the project on sourceforge.

I haven't gotten it running, but looks promising. I'll also check out the ones you posted.

Thanks

You can also build a macro in OO and then call OO from the command line to accomplish this. Look for "OpenOffice batch conversion odt format" or something in Google. On the OpenOffice forum there are loads of examples.
