What is the best method for converting MS Word templates to OTT templates? Specifically, I want to convert templates in .docx format that include tables and pull-down menus with minimal loss of the original formatting and functionality.

Be aware that sometimes it is better to create a new document:

Trial and error is what you are searching... ;-)

Using DOTs, or Converting a DOT to OTT, will not only make the conversion artifacts pollute a single document, but generate tons of such documents polluted from their birth. If you need similar templates, please seriously consider re-creating them anew in Writer instead, however extra work it required; it will pay in long run.
