As others have mentioned, there is something that does folding within
lists (only, afaik). That is not the equivalent of what Word
does--folding of an entire document (or parts thereof) based on the
headings in the document.

I think there is an automatic ToC which can be helpful to at least view
the outline structure of the document.

There is a bug/RFE for outline
mode-- (AbiWord's)
Bugzilla has a voting mechanism--if you want to see this feature
implemented vote, register in bugzilla and vote. IIRC, you have 30
votes and can assign multiple votes to a single item.

BTW, in OpenOffice (or StarOffice, or both) you can bring up a panel
that shows the outline structure of the document--I think the <F9> key
does it.
