Surprised no-one has replied yet. From my understanding this needs
version 1.3.4 (which doesn't really exist yet!)  Until then the official
line is you can't import character formatting, only para formatting.
I was supposed to write a Wiki article on a work around I found - but
ran out of time.

So the short answer is: If you can import into OO as a
database/mailmerge apply the formatting that way. so that you have a OO
document with character formatting.  then save it in HTML format.  You
can import HTML and it appears to apply bold/italics etc.

Hope that helps?  Mail back if you need a more detailed explanation and
I might get round to writing the Wiki...

As for the divisions... No idea?

Ads will be imported probably from text files (exported from MySql) or/and from OpenOffice file - I know that from OO it 's imported with styles but I wouldn't like to prepare each advertisement manually. So how to do it?

In other words - when I put picture field which has width of min. 2 columns I'm able to put it in that way that it is between two paragraphs in the first column but in the second one it divides paragraph into two parts. I'd like the section in second column to move so the picture was also between section. I can do it of course manually but I'd like it done automatically.
