Google Docs doesn't use OpenOffice.org engine in the back end for
manipulating the documents... it has its own proprietary internal format
and engine. This means that when you take an ODF file and push it to
Google Docs and then edit it in Google Docs, you don't get what was
originally in your file, if you have fancy formatting... same for MS
Office files, actually.
While neither of these formats are 100% supported, it usually works
nicely... but there ARE cases where things just don't look like you
meant them to. That's something to take into account if you create fancy
Does that mean better? Or worse? Don't know. If everything you do is
always IN Google Doc, this may not be a problem for you. If you have to
exchange docs with people that have the actual MS Office or OOo
applications, then it may be.
