Using the recent version from the repository and the configuration file
provided to me directly by Michal I converted the XeLaTeX source to the
ODT format. I'm impressed by the quality, I will send the file to the
editors without any additional hand editing. Thank you Michal!

There are some minor rather aesthetic problems which I would like to
solve in case the paper will be accepted and I will be asked again to
provide the final version in the Word format, but there is no hurry.

I can provide all the relevant files to anybody interested via Dropbox.

I would like also to thank others who were helpful, especially to Philip

Best regards
