Hello Charles,

2011/1/4 Charles-H. Schulz <>:
We are not interested in OOXML, a standard that became one only after a
campaign of deception and unacceptable pressures driven by Microsoft.  We
are interested in ODF, an open standard developed by many players including

We are only offering convenience to our users by letting them interact with
the poprietary formats of ms office product range. Therefore the OOXML
standard is not really something we are interested to help.

I think I was misunderstood.


I was not so much asking you guys to help us in SC34/WG4. With
implementers at Microsoft Office, ORACLE OpenOffice, LibreOffice,
Kingsoft, DataWatch etc, I think we are pretty well covered as it is.

(I'd personally be interested in what you find, but that's a whole other story)

I was suggesting that making your findings public (if you indeed find
some), you'd be able to help other OSS projects with focus like yours
(which is "users" and not promoting OOXML), and in addition you'd be
helping people like Leif and companies like ORACLE, IBM etc who are
actively fighting OOXML in governments etc.
