This should be fixed now, the DOM filter is used automatically by make4ht ODT output.

I've found really strange issue with the behavior of nested tables when the array package is loaded and the ODT output is active. More details are here:


It seems that a \special{t4ht@[} instruction is missing somewhere, but I couldn't find where. Workaround is presented in my answer, but I think we should dig deeper and find the real issue. I must admit that I don't understand at all why the \special commands are used in that context at all, there are no comments in the sources.

The other issue is that nested tables are inserted in paragraphs and this are not shown at all. I think this can be fixed only using post-processing, proposed filter for make4ht is included in my answer.
