How to save ODF text file in XML representation?

Hi all,
I am making a paper in which I am comparing OOXML and ODF. One of the points is the syntax of the XML code. In Word 2003 there is an option to 'save as XML file', however I can not find any ODF program that enables that option. What ODF program can do that?

Plz help me.

ODF is an Online Document Format file, from OpenOffice.
Free Alternative to Microsoft Office.

Openoffice.org saves in (approximately) ODF 1.0. This is how I remember reading it somewhere--I could easily be wrong. The difference is lightly described here:

http://opendocument.xml.org/node/137

I you save a document in Ooo Writer (the word equivalent) the extension is .odt. A simple way to see the underlying XML on a windoze box is to change the extension to .zip and browse the resultant compressed folder.

I apologize if you were looking for a pure ODF document, this probably isn't an answer.

Hello,

The OpenDocument format is a file format for processing electronic office documents such as spreadsheets, charts, presentations and word processing documents. While the specifications were originally developed by Sun, the standard was developed by the Open Office XML technical committee of the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) consortium and based on the XML format originally created and implemented by the OpenOffice.org office suite (see OpenOffice.org XML). The OpenDocument standard meets the common definitions of an open standard, meaning the specification is freely available and implementable.

Thanks.
