I tried to edit or create doc files with AbiWord and LibreOffice Writer. It seems that they work, but when I upload the doc file in document submission websites, the systems complains that it is not a standard doc file and cannot be processed (usually creating pdf).

Is there a way to create standard doc file, as all systems accept it?

Ideally, I prefer to save abw file then convert it to standard doc (probably by command line). But when I save the file in AbiWord as doc, it is not a standard Microsoft Word.
