OpenDocument Now International Standard
“OpenDocument was ratified as a file format standard Tuesday night by an international standards group, setting the stage for greater worldwide adoption of the open-source file format technology.
“A number of productivity applications, such as OpenOffice 2.0, Sun Microsystems’ StarOffice 8 and IBM’s Workplace, support the OpenDocument file format. Microsoft, however, is not supporting OpenDocument and instead is seeking ISO standardization for its own Office Open XML file formats.”
