we use htdig on word documents, but now we've switched to OpenOffice.org, and
we haven't any parser. Does it exist or is it planned ?

I haven't heard of or found leads to an OpenOffice.org to HTML document
converter. However, the OpenOffice.org web site states that these
documents are XML, so it should be pretty easy for someone familiar with
basic HTML, and with Perl, awk or sed scripting, to whip up a rudimentary
XML to HTML converter specific for these documents, so it could pick
out the elements you want and surround them by appropriate HTML tags
so htdig indexes them using the word types you want (i.e. titles, meta
keywords & description, hyperlinks and their descriptions, plain text).
Even simpler, you could probably feed the XML straight into htdig's
HTML parser and it would at least index most/all the text as plain text.
Not having actually seen any OpenOffice.org documents, though, it's hard
for me to speculate on exactly how easy or difficult the task might be.
