sends us to Computerworld for a story on the intention of the OpenDocument Foundation to drop support for Open Document Format
, OASIS and ISO standards not withstanding, in favor of the Compound Documents Format
being promoted by the W3C. The foundation's director of business affairs, Sam Hiser, dropped this bomb in a blog posting
a couple of weeks ago. Hiser believes CDF has a better shot at compatibility with Microsoft's OOXML, and says that the foundation has been disappointed with the direction of ODF over the last year.
