Libreoffice/Microsoft office compatibility and pagination

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any advice to help ensure that Microsoft Office files
open (and save) correctly in Libreoffice (on Linux), in particular in
terms of pagination?

>From what I have read the advice seems to be:

1. Install Microsoft fonts
2. Use a recent version of Libreoffice

However, the pagination for almost every DOC file that I open with
Libreoffice is wrong (there are always more pages in the import than the
original document). 

Happy to file bug reports etc, but just wanted to check I hadn't missed
anything obvious first.
