docx; was Re^2: OTF conversion without OpenOffice

MS invented docx.  Now when John Doe wants to say "Summer 
Vacation Planning Meeting.  Bring your coffee mug to the boardroom 
at 3:00." he can send an archive containing a hierarchy of a 
dozen or so files. Several kB in total.

In Squeeze, AbiWord 2.4.6 reports "Error importing file /home/peter/blah.doc.docx."
According to release notes, docx capability appears in 2.8.0.

When iceweasel attempts to open document.xml it reports 
"This XML file does not appear to have any style information 
associated with it.  ..."  styles.xml is there but iceweasel misses it.

Anyone have a clever way of opening the document with Iceweasel.

Thanks,              ... Peter E.
