Submission + - Office 2007 fails OOXML conformance test. (slashdot.org)

hullabalucination writes: "CNET is reporting that Alex Brown, "leader of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) group in charge of maintaining the Office Open XML (OOXML) standard," has stated that Microsoft Office 2007-generated documents do not conform to ISO/IEC 29500, the OOXML standard.

Brown is said to be hopeful that Microsoft will eventually bring Office 2007 up to snuff, but goes on to ask, "The question behind the question, for a lot of the current OOXML debate, seems to be: can Microsoft really be trusted to behave?""
