Afaik, OpenOffice can output HTML files. Therefore one can build a
document with text, tables, images etc and then export it as HTML.
Sure, it will prolly look like crap when compared to (let's say) what
Dreamweaver can do, but still, it helps those who have no clue about
web design and only need a rudimentary homepage.
