When trying to convert a simple LaTeX document to 
LibreOffice/OpenOffice, cross references and citations do not show in 
the final document. They do when converting to (X)HTML, but this has 
other drawbacks. How to set up conversion to LibreOffice properly?

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 with packaged TeXlive 2012 and LibreOffice 3.6.

The code required to replicate this can be downloaded from 
https://github.com/muelleki/lm-template/archive/ooffice.zip or checked 
out using Git from https://github.com/muelleki/lm-template/tree/ooffice, 
look for the branch "ooffice". To compile, use "make texput.odt".

I use the following commands to compile the document:

     latexmk texput.tex
     htlatex texput.tex "xhtml,ooffice,bib-" "ooffice/! -cmozhtf" "-coo 

Analysis of the generated `content.xml` file (inside `texput.odt` which 
in fact is a ZIP archive) shows mysterious `<t4htlink>` elements, I'm 
not sure they're part of the Open Document specification... Removing the 
opening and closing tags fixes the issue, at least for the reference to 
the section. The citation needs some more fixing. (The results don't 
change if I omit the `bib-` switch for the compilation.)

This has also been posted to TeX.SX: 

Thank you.

Best regards
