Yes, all of them.

Yes, all of them, although - given the immense complexity and the non
standard nature of MS Office formats - interoperability is not perfect,
and the layout of the documents might have slight differences.

If and when MS will release a standard implementation of OOXML (4 years
after the standardization is a long enough time frame to raise serious
doubts), LO will be able to improve the interoperability.

In any case, a format that needs a 7.200 pages manual is intrinsically
far too complex (ODF manual is just over 1.000 pages, i.e. still a huge
document, although 5 times smaller).
