Hey all,

Yeah i thought about Google Docs synchronisation. For example this is what i
do now but a more manual process.
It does work, but as you say you loose fidelity because google docs is not
Open Office.

I cant help but think that the purist way of rendering directly using html5
and JavaScript specifically off an unpackaged open office word doc is a
better approach.
Again here is the idea:
1. Client side unpacking and packing. JS can do this and handle
the various aspects of this.
- I node that using NodeJS we can leverage doing all aspects either server
side or client side thats to CommonJS standard.

2. The XML is rendered to the dom, and then "compiled" using angularJS in
order to re-render the various parts of the XML.
- For each XML part of namespace a controller and view
rendering mechanism is available with AngularJS which is very concise.

3. Some standard interaction GUI controls can be used for common things like
"search and Replace, style, file IO, notifications etc.
The idea is not to completely implement the OO functionality for Word docs,
but to just give basic editing.
Because the the way AngularJS works anything NOT implemented off the XML is
still able to be reproduced in the XML to COM conversion and back from DOM
to XML again.

Now the question is this:
1. What parts of this can be leveraged off the current code base to be done
server side ? SOme ideas:
a. Packaging and unpacking
b. Data data extraction out of the XML fragments ?
