Thanks, Philip! I saw those articles in her blog the other day, but I didn't think about advertising the links. I've added most of the articles you mentioned to the appropriate pages in the wiki.

I struggled a bit with where to put the Writer Tools piece; I ended up adding it to the Using Macros page. But I'm wondering if we should start a new page for Extensions/Add-ons.

In addition to the Writer Tools, there would be the OygenOfficeProfessional ClipArt and Template packages (already on the Clip Art and Template pages), and dMaths. Presumably there are others I don't know about?

Unfortunately, the macros don't run successfully in Neo. If I knew anything about VBA, I'd love to see the 'Translate' macro work but I can't figure out how to pass the constructed URL to Firefox to handle.

At the moment, there's an 'If' statement which differentiates between OOo on Windows or Linux (X11 too , maybe?) but no go on Mac OS X.

Sad

If someone with VBA knowledge or with a Mac version of Office still with VBA support, maybe they could have a look at it, I'm sure they would be a huge productivity boon for the wiki translation team in NeoOffice.

I almost asked if anyone knew if they worked before adding to the wiki; since it looked liked they used OOo BASIC, I didn't bother. Embarassed I'll add a note to the wiki about that.

I take it the instructions on how to change the default browser (found on the page Philip mentions above) didn't fix the problem?

Did you try all the Macros in Writer tools?

Does anyone know how similar Dokuwiki and Mediawiki formatting are? I'm wondering if the Dokuwiki tool could be of help to those of use who work in the wiki. That presumes, of course that it will work in Neo at all.
