Anyone know of a "converter" where I could take a pre-written cache description document and get it converted to it's HTML page source? I can then drop it in the description section of a new cache page listing.
One that works with Firefox, OpenOffice documents and Windows 7.
Thanks for any leads.
I have a pile of caches to publish if I can get this done and figure out what the heck groundspeak has done with the submission forms.

I've created a lot of pages since the last 'improvement'. It takes a bit longer, but I don't fill in any of the text the first run thru, but the very basics. Once you've saved the page the first time you can go back and edit it the old way.

This is exactly what I've been doing. In fact, first time through, I don't even bother to make sure anything applies. I just keep clicking until it's saved and then go back in later.

Too bad they can't have an "expert" mode, from the beginning, which is the OLD WAY.
