[ ... ]

I also remember seeing emails about trouble with Open Office Math.
>From using it, it looks like LaTex code.
   Well, it looks a little like TeX, but it isn't TeX.  
   It goes back to how StarMath was conceived.  Regina
   can provide much more about that.
Editing Open Office Writer in Word and saving it in .odt format, the LaTex code gets changed.
It would be nice if we added an insert a “Greek letter” as a Math options panel.
If anyone wants to redo it, I know how to write math expressions using native html.
Basically I use an (inline) table to hold all the symbols.
I do realize that currently Open Office cannot have a table in the middle of a paragraph.
However, I think we can sneak  in a construct.

  In the ODF Schema, table elements are text-content, not paragraph-content.  
  There are ways to introduce text content in certain paragraph-content elements, 
  such as with text frames.  If you want to roam around in the schema, this
  might be fun for you: <>.

  However, I think using MathML and full Unicode for symbols may be better in
  that particular case.
