Whenever I save an odt in Writer 3.5, Word 14 opens it complaining it's corrupted.
I found an ODF validator, it reports that Word 14's ODT is 1.1 and is invalid, with a few references in manifest that shouldn't be there. In the same validator, Writer 3.5's ODT is 1.2 and is also invalid, with an attribute that's everywhere and isn't expected.
As I've tested, Word 14 is better than old OpenOffice in converting complex doc documents to ODT, and Writer 3.5 is better than Word 14! I have a very good doc template with TOC and some good styles, I wanna convert it to ODT and manually edit it to make it even better. But I'm afraid of converting and losing data, or creating an ODT that in the future won't be properly opened by newer editors.

See the release notes
Microsoft Office 2010 will complain that ODF 1.2 and extended documents written by LibreOffice 3.5 are invalid (but opens them still). This is a shortcoming in MSO2010 only supporting ODF 1.1, please see here for further details.
here being a link to http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/3.5#ODF_1.2_Conforming_Documents
So just ignore the warning.
Change version of ODF and try open it in Word 2010 (14). Go to LibO Tool > Options > Load/Save > ODF format version > and change from 1.2 extended to 1.0/1.1. Save file again and open in Word.
Ps. It may cause troubles with new features.

Many thanks for this solution which has solved my problem in saving in .odt format.
However I still have a problem in MS Office Word 2010 not opening files saved by LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 using Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP/2003 (.doc)(*.doc) format.
Would appreciate further assistance.
