    I am playing with Open Office 2.4 and I wrote a web page on the 
editor and then got it to be saved as a HTML file and it did so. On 
Firefox it looked good.

    I have not tried any boxes. I know from the OO help that all 
pictures are saved as .jpl files. I wonder if you could make your boxes 
a picture?
