Office Format Now a Standard

OpenXML, a new format for Microsoft Office, was approved as a standard by Ecma, a Swiss standards group. This is good news, but having good native support of the OpenDocument format would be better still.

I'll be curious to see how many ISVs build OpenXML into their apps. I'm not expecting any huge lines.
