I used libwmf (wmf2svg) for the first time and I noticed that when I converted a particular file that had a label in the image with the text "< ...", when the conversion to svg was made and parsed by another program, it treated this as a new xml tag and threw several errors. When I find and replace these "<"'s, the svg file is fine.
Here's the details:
*on feisty fawn ubuntu
*"wmf2svg --version" gives "libwmf: version 0.2.8"
*the program that is parsing the svg is inkscape.
*A portion of inkscape's output:
"d100.svg:1324: parser error : StartTag: invalid element name
>Local Leverage, P<.0001</text>"
(it's a statistical graph and "P<.0001" is part of a title of text in the output image).
*I attached the wmf and the svg used, executing the command "wmf2svg d_100_10_6323.WMF > d100.svg"
Besides this, it works great. Thanks for making the non-windows world a better place:)
