This Python program rectifies the numbering of examples in OpenOffice
linguistic papers, and keeps references to examples coordinated. The
program assumes that all example numbers start on the left edge of a line,
and that all references to examples are preceded by a space. The program
allows forward references but only to the very next example. For backward
references where there is more than one example with the same number it
assumes that the reference is to the most recent one with that number. The
program assumes that the paper has less than 1000 examples.

Please contact me via e-mail at:
and I will send you the code for this program.

To use the program, open X.odt as though it were X.zip (maybe rename X.odt as
X.odt.zip), extract 'content.xml' from it; apply this program to
content.xml ('python renumber.py content.xml'), then reinsert content.xml
into X.odt, overwriting the original. Save a copy of the original X.odt as
things might go bad.
