Maybe, but it would be nice to have it different, see my wishreport:

Well, that is not an option because I would have to set the style on all
the text again, and that took ages (literally days) the first time I did
it because I have 150 pages :-/

Again, it took too long applying the styles, so this would be very time
consuming. If just the OOo importer would have been perfect then I would
not have to fiddle with them, but ...
If I would have to do it again I probably would have splitted the
original document in parts and imported each article separately.

Sad, but true :-(
I will have to try to do in anyway. Thanks for the suggestions :-)
