This is the home of the OpenOffice.org Word Processing Project. Its heart is the Writer application but it also comprises the OpenOffice.org Formula Editor Math, the integration of the linguistic components (spell checker, hyphenator, thesaurus) and some document filters for formats of other word processors. The linguistic components themselves are part of the lingucomponent project.
