Newly discovered OpenOffice.org feature of the day returns! At OOoCon I had the opportunity to talk with the guys who really know the code inside out and backwards, the release engineers. I learnt a fair amount about the huge number of Easter eggs that were in the code before the release of the code to the open source community and some of the l33t formatting options that are available. For example wrapping words in stars like *so* indicates that you want them turned bold, _underline_ also works.

Although talking with Ben and others I can see how this could be a bad idea asterisk wrapping has a slightly different semantic meaning these days. Ah well, file an IZ if you don’t like it.
