5.3. Any to Any with OpenOffice.org and Bitstream Vera Fonts
The title says it all. OpenOffice.org's all platform packages include the Bitstream Vera package . So if you'll take care to use only these fonts, your documents will open nicely in any other OpenOffice.org installation.
As a side note, OpenOffice.org excels in portability. In any platform, OOo looks and works the same, and it takes special care with your documents layout. It is simply a great tool.
