plain text format. Now ehen I try to open these documents they come up in a long unrecognizable form. IIs there any way to convert these files to a regular readable "text" format??? Thanks!

Your ODT files were created with OpenOffice. Open the files in OpenOffice. Then click on the File Menu and chose Save As. From there you can type in a new file name and there will be a box below that says "Save as Type". There should be an option to save as Plain Text.
