Hi Florin,

I have checked the latest version and french accents work well. I might add that the fix was done very quickly.

My Windows XP regional setting is set to English-Ca, all my applications are in english but we communicate in french ;-). In the next few days, I will reinstall XWiki with the latest XOffice plugin and document the problems on your tracking system.

Hi Asiri,

I am a little confused by the quality of XWiki 2.1.1. At this point I find that there are many features that don't work properly or at all :

- Office plugin (the office 2007 ribbon has a very buggy behavior)

You are probably using a french version of Windows. I know XOffice it's generally buggy on it, but I need more info in order to fix it. Re: Your french accents issue is now fixed. Please wait for the next update or release in order to have it working.

- Document import (There is no documentation about version compatibility between the different elements) - Usage with SQL Server 2005 is impossible. Works fine with PostgreSQL though.

I can't continue testing such a product. To bad, it looked very good.

Hi Asiri,

I currently use the latest version of OO (3.1.1 Build 9420). What else can I check ?

Well, you can try un-installing openoffice and reinstalling. But I doubt this will help.

Next thing you can try is use jodconverter directly and try to convert your document from odt to html.

Here is the link:

How to use it:

If the command-line conversion fails for your document, then the error should probably be reported to jodconverter users list.

Thanks Simon Glet

As you have understood it seems the problem is with your OOo


Can you try removing your existing OOo installation and installing the latest version from  This will most probably


the issue.
