Provide scripts for diff and merge of Open Document Format files (odt, ods and odp)
Currently there are merge and diff scripts available for xls(x), doc(x) and ppt(x) files, but more and more European organizations are moving to Open Document Format files as their standard.
Would it be possible to merge them using Altova's XML merge tools? If so, automating the merge would be a matter of just a couple of scripts...
jOpenDocument (http://www.jopendocument.org) is a pure Java library for OASIS Open Document files manipulation, but the web site only mentions concatenating, not merging, ODF files.
However, ODF files are just zipped XML file collections, so text diff and merge should be possible on the individual XML files in the compressed file.

Are you aware of any scripts available to merge this?? If so, it would take us minutes to get it integrated.
