You can't send an attachment to the list. But if you want to send me a
small ODT file exported from TextMaker I'll open it in my OOo 3.1.1 on
Fedora 11 and see if the problem exists there as well.

Until your message I had never heard of Softmaker or their Office
suite. I went to their web page and was struck by the almost complete
lack of mention of OOo. I also couldn't find much detail about features.
