Chemestry formulas in OpenOffice.org

With this extension you can insert chemical formulas directly in OpenOffice.org documents.

This is really nice. As an old chemist, OpenOffice.org user, and free software advocate I'm happy to see when all three come together.

I don't know where the images are generated. But phenol isn't optimal. Moreover, the name parsing is very strict: chloro benzene silently crash while chlorobenzene generates an image.

Do you know if the possibility of editing will be added?
