Seems to be useless. Word8/97 is a virtually 10 year old file format.
Whether I use wvHtml or wvText all I get for output is a 0 byte file,
with no error messages from wvHtml, and the message "Could not convert
to HTML" from wvText. :-(

However, that README points to which in
turn recommends using abiword instead. Abiword shows up in the menu, and
creates HTML that SeaMonkey can open, and usable plain text. :-)

Abiword has a much longer list of file formats it can import and export
than OO. So, why is OO installed by default instead of Abiword?
