Journal vmxeo's Journal: Microsoft Office 2007 Fails OOXML Conformance Tests

Alex Brown, head of th ISO OOXML standard group, revealed in a blog posting last week that Microsoft Office 2007 fails conformance testing with its own ISO OOXML standard.

In short:

"Word documents generated by today's version of MS Office 2007 do not conform to ISO/IEC 29500"

Alex goes on to wonder at the end of his posting how well most other word processors would fare with ODF.

Groklaw has also weighed in with comments on the not-entirely-surprising reveltation.
