.odt is the default file extension for the upcoming OOo 2 Writer. It is only slightly different to the sxw format, and the main reason for the change in format mame / extension was to remove references to OOo or SO, so that the format can become a non program specific standard.

Of course OOo 2 will still be able to read/write .sxw files in the same way as OOo 1 can.

Hope this makes sense.

Looks like the things are not exactly that way: I've experienced some (thought minor) differences in displaying the same documents with OOo 1.9 m100 and OOo 1.1.4.

Yes me too. even OOo 1.9.104 and 100 are open the same file with a some difference. For example, I saw that a few lines slipped.
