Microsoft Office 2007 Fails OOXML Conformance Tests

Groklaw has an interesting article about that MS Office 2007 does not comply with the ISO 29500 standard (OOXML) and fails the OOXML conformance tests. On the other hand does OpenOffice conform with the other ISO-document standard ISO 29300 (ODF). So we have one standard that noone complies with and onte that some complies with. Where will this end?

A better news is that South Africa is adding up to the group of countries that accept ODF as a national standard. Lat week was it Brazil.
