Hi Guido,

this is not so trivial question. There are several possibilities how to
run this command.

You can run directly 

   make4ht -l pokus.tex  "xhtml,ooffice" "ooffice/! -cmozhtf" 
     " -coo -cxtpipes -cvalidate"

note the space before `-coo`, library which make4ht uses for cli
argument handling interprets `-coo` as argument for make4ht otherwise.
the space will prevent it. 

A more robust solution is to use `.mk4` build file, like following:

    settings.tex4ht_sty_par = settings.tex4ht_sty_par ..",ooffice"
    settings.tex4ht_par = settings.tex4ht_par .. " ooffice/! -cmozhtf" 
    settings.t4ht_par = settings.t4ht_par .. " -cooxtpipes -coo "
    if mode == "draft" then

Using this you will be able to run 

   make4ht -l -e build.mk4 file
