Mediawiki export from Openoffice 2.3

I heard on the Java Possee podcast– that the new release of Open Office , version 2.3 will support output to mediawiki markup. As someone who helps keep the bioscreencastwiki updated this is a godsend to ease user adoption of wikis.

Of course assuming that users first start using the amazingly featured and free openoffice suite first  :-).

  1. I acutally tried the extension and it doesn’t look like the export is outputting much more than text.

    I’m thinking I must be missing something.

    For instance I tried some text and manipulated font size and color and made it bold. Exported it to mediawiki.txt file but no mediawiki code.

    Oh well I figure I’m missing something.
