Thank you for your long answer - i did not expect to get two answers
(one came from Kristian) within 6 hours, thats really motivating me to
go foreward in this problem.

I`ve installed TL 2010 full-scheme yesterday, it took me some hours and
in the first try i got an error after 5/6
of the installation, pearl broke down. I started the install.bat again
and the installation finished so i hope thats no problem. I can TeXify
all my old files, so i think it is.
Also htlatex (with the optional parameters for word) gives me - together
with biblatex - a correct html, thats great!

That was the next thing i realised, trying to use oolatex filename right
after getting a good html...
But then instead of oolatex i used
htlatex filename "xhtml,ooffice" "ooffice/! -cmozhtf" "-coo -cvalidate"
which i understood as being the same?
This works so far, i alway get an .odt file. Now, in some cases the .odt
cannot be opened by OO, it seems to be a biblatex problem again because
i can produce a readable .odt for "Hello World" (using scratcl) and also
for a protocol of a laboratory, here i used thebibliography. At last i
took a file where bibtex was used and i could still open the .odt. Only
the file where i used biblatex could not be opened.

That would be great! Thank you another time for the help!
