I keep both programs on my main computer because I like to perform the functions myself as I am walking a customer through a problem over the phone. But I still find myself using Microsoft Office more then OpenOffice even when it has nothing to do with a customers problem.
The main reason why I even asked about the plugin is because I am seeing more of an international trend leaning towards the OpenDocument as the standard format, especially in India.
However I did find a plugin by Sun Microsystems after a bit of searching. I haven't tried it yet, but it appears to be what I am looking for, check it out here - http://www.sun.com/s...lugin/index.jsp
It makes sense that Sun Microsystems would put out the plugin since Sun and IBM are the leading company's behind the push for OpenDocument to be the global industry standard. I'm going to test out the plugin on one of my bench systems and see how it behaves, if it's any good i'll be sure to post the results here for you all.

The .doc format is the Word standard, not the international standard for anything. It's just that Word is used here, there and everywhere that 99% of computers can open a Word Document with Word itself, and the other 1% can use the Word Viewer.
