Well that really sucks, it seems OOo is quickly reaching MS-Word
quality, your documents look different every time you open them :-/

What i don't understand is why for a few months OOo on FC5 still would
display the documents correctly. On rawhide i could understand it
because it has 2.0.3 instead of 2.0.2, although this would still be a
serious bug if documents look different in 2.0.3 compared to 2.0.2.

Sometimes you wish that ppl writing things like OOo would pay as much
attention to output quality as Donald Knuth :-/ Of course ppl writing
things like OOo would sometimes wish ppl would help them instead of
complaining ;-)
