I'm a french user willing to get some answers about OOXML format. 
This post is already released on the fr.discuss mailing list. 

As you may know, something changing the game just happened in France. 
The second version of the Interoperability General Refenrential was just released. 
It demands all the public administrations (by law) to conform to certain file formats when the 
exchanged from administration to administration or from a citizen to an administration and vice et 

ODF is recommended. 

OOXML strict is tolerated in some case. 
OOXML transitionnal is not. 
Binary older file formats are not either. 

Thus, it becomes very interresting to investigate what's behind OOXML. 

in this article : 

3 different OOXML formats are described : 
"There is the ECMA version (that’s the one MS Office 2007 writes, which was certified by ECMA 
International). Then there is OOXML Transitional, which is relatively close to the ECMA version, 
and is the format that all later versions to date write as default. Finally, there is OOXML 

In this MS$ tab : 
Only two OOXML formats are described : transitionnal and strict 

A very simple question to an OOXML specialist : 

Is transitionnal OOXML ECMA-376 compliant ? 

If not, is transitionnal OOXML compliant with any norm or standard ? 

Best regards and thanks in advance for any answer.
