[Upstream] [hardy] OpenOffice creates invalid html when "save as HTML"

Bug #39455 reported by Tero Karvinen

Bug Description

HTML files saved from OpenOffice are invalid.

To reproduce
1) Write a document in OpenOffice.org writer
Create a table, and insert a picture.
2) File: Save as:, File Type: HTML Document (OpenOffice.org Writer)
3) Validate the document in http://validator.w3.org

What should happen:
It should validate, as it claims to be HTML.

What actually happens:
Validation fails.

I created a test page in Dapper Flight 6 and openoffice.org-writer 2.0.2-2ubuntu1, but this bug is also present in Dapper. I find it suprising that OpenOffice can't save HTML, as its native save format is XML-based.

I did not include the image mentioned in an img tag to make it easier to view attachment online. Just image an apple in place of broken image.

There are no new official OpenOffice.org releases in Ubuntu packaging anymore => Won't Fix

If the problem persists, please mark this bug as "also affects project Libreoffice" or "also affects distribution Libreoffice (Ubuntu)" if that has not happened already.

Please leave references to upstream OpenOffice.org bugs in place to allow cross pollination.
