RTF (left) VS DOCX (right)

1) open attachment 104685 [details]
2) look at the TOC on page 3 and how all entries have a grey background color (i'm assuming this grey background has to do with some feature of TOC)
3) save it as an RTF, close it, reopen the RTF, and return to TOC

Problem: Only the first entry has the grey background color, as seen in the attached screenshot. The text being blue and having an underline is a fileopen issue and has already been reported in bug 82071.

4) open RTF in MS Word 2007, 2010, or 2013
5) goto page 3 to compare the TOC

Problems in MS Word:
1) When opening the RTF, you get a notice on how to add/remove entries from the TOC (Word is thinking there arent any entries in the TOC).
2) 'No table of contents entries found.' is written before the first entry in the TOC.
3) The grey background color doesnt appears behind TOC entries
4) Page numbers arent aligned on the right

Tested in 4.4 (2014-08-12) on Windows and 4.3.2 (2014-08-09) on Linux.

Repro 6.4+
But this DOCX has only ToC and no contents. So I guess not a valid example.
Better to test with original DOCX  attachment 103815 [details].
Saving in Lo 6.4+ as RTF on reopen in LO gives "File format error at 3116,7(row,col)". MSO is unable to open document.

Note: RT and ToC update of DOCX gives somewhat different table, seems trivial. Looks OK in MSO.
RT of DOC gives wrong preview of table but ToC update fixes that. MSO opens with errors and repairs. ToC also looks wrong and update somewhat fixes it.
