Hi. We are currently using Word 2000 automation to batch-translate
classified ads for web posting, but it's proving to be pretty clunky and
unreliable. We're now trying to switch over to using wvWare, but I can't get
it to convert the external TIFF logo graphics in the ads. Error message is
** WARNING **: Invalid seek
Diagnostic: (./escher.c:223) Eating type 0xf004
Diagnostic: (./wvWare.c:568) Strange No Graphic Data in the 0x01/0x08 graphic
According to the list archives, 0x01/0x08 graphics are currently not
Can anyone tell me what is involved in getting wvWare to work with these
graphics? Alternately, how hard would it be for us to get wvHtml to output
the native filesystem path to the graphic? That way we could do the graphic
conversion externally, and do a regex replace on the resulting HTML to change
the img src.
The docs are created in a proprietary, closed source app which is built
around Word 97. I've placed a sample ad document at
Any suggestions or insight into where this feature falls in the development
roadmap would be very much appreciated. We're willing to help with testing
if anyone is working on this.

I think they are.
I don't think there is a 'development roadmap' for wv, but I'll take a
look sometime. BTW, the website isn't responding.
