Apache OpenOffice does not work on the node-tree, but has its own model. 
Therefore it has import and export filters.

You are right about this special XHTML files. Apache OpenOffice opens 
them in the Formula module, imports the MathML fragment and skips all 
surrounding elements. LibreOffice has a different file type detection 
and you need to explicitly choose the MathML import filter. But either 
way it is possible to test the MathML import using the XHTML files. I 
was not aware that the parser has this feature.

There exists no filter to show the whole XHTML-file as a browser would 
do, but you can only import the file as source code.

Yes, the XHTML files are useful too, so that I can use the browser to 
show the comments and see the rendering in the browser.

A common archive type would be good, a kind that 7-Zip can handle. A 
.zip will work and a .tar.gz as well.

I would be delighted if you could produce such an archive. Am I the 
first who is looking for an archive?

Kind regards
