May I suggest you ask the Oo geeks in

http://www.oooforum.org/
-> OpenOffice.org Writer

I did a quick search and didn't find anything, but I didn't
look too hard. I would think this subject has been discussed
before and some filter (macro, extra, etc) handles *.dot files.

As you know, document templates (.dot) create a .doc when opened, so there might be some logic (code, routines, methods) in the template itself that OOo doesn't handle correctly.

I'm not a OOo user (just had a glance at it once or twice), but I'd try the following :

- In msOffice, create a .doc from a .dot. It has all the fonts and formatting you intended

- open the .doc in OOo. It should still have all the fonts and formatting you intended

- try to save it in OOo's equivalent of a document template (I have no idea what that is and how to do it)

- If that worked so ar, you can probably create Writer files from the template and save them as .doc for use in a Microsoft environment.

If I'm right, you've got yourself a workaround. If I'm wrong, you've learned something about msWord and OOo Writer. Win-Win.
And if you post back on how it went, I learn without having to try. Smile
