Which file formats are supported by KOffice?

Many KOffice applications support the filter architecture (i.e.: they are able to use filters for file conversion.) The filters are not perfect and some not even done. The status of the current filters is listed below, sorted per application.

Note: this document is about the KOffice 1.6 branch.
