[Athen] Microsoft Word versus Open Office

Does OpenOffice's PDF export feature support "tagged PDF", and is the result
a well-structured, reasonably accessible PDF document?

(I'm asking this not to squelch you OpenOffice advocates' enthusiasm - It's
just something I've been wondering and haven't had a chance to investigate).
