Subject: Open Office File Format / Graphics / Draw

I found the discussion about the Open Office file format on oasis-open.org.
My current work included some work on a import filter for Adobe Illustrator
files into KOffice / Karbon.
The import filter (written in ruby) tries to transfer the data structures from Adobe
Illustrator into a XML like syntax, using a SAX like filter. This allows me
to define and extend my own dataformat, as I see fit. The idea is currently
not to implement a given file format (Karbon, OpenOffice draw or the like),
but instead model the full feature set of Adobe Illustrator until version 8.

I have uploaded some sample documents, you may find it at

Could you please forward this mail to the office@oasis-open.org, too.
The idea is to put some new ideas into the discussion about what is needed
for a editable graphics format (instead of a render-only graphics format
like SVG)



There is no formal description of this format yet, but open the
above examples to see what it's about.
