comment Copy “true” value from OpenOffice (for pasting in external app)
Are you sure the number is not stored/copied as the full thing? If you format the cell it should affect the displayed number only. Copy and paste the two decimal (displayerd) cell to another cell, then format the new cell to 6 decimal places and you should see it all.

I´d agree with you. I upgraded my EeePC 1000H netbook to 2 GB RAM and Win7 home runs fine on it.

comment Open link in the same tab for Firefox
Sorry - for me normal left click opens in same tab, CTRL click in new tab, SHIFT click in new window. In google search for example I use CTRL click to open search results in new tabs. I have Tab Mix Plus add-on loaded.
