OOXML standard is a joke and implementations vary from program to program. I cannot even have the version of Word on Mac to read the version on Windows. Even during a project in which I was creating .docx files in Sharepoint were causing Abiword to barf even though they read ok in Word.

What's a standard if systems cannot interoperate?

Microsoft Circles the Wagons To Defeat ODF In the UK
Andy Updegrove writes "Three weeks ago, we heard that Francis Maude, a senior UK government minister, was predicting the conversion to open source office suites by UK government agencies. Lost in the translation in many stories was the fact that this was based not on an adopted policy, but on a proposal still open for public comment — and subject to change. It should be no surprise that Microsoft is trying to get the UK to add OOXML, its own format standard, to the UK policy. Why? According to a messaging sent to its UK partners, because it believes that a failure to include OOXML 'will cause problems for citizens and businesses who use office suites which don't support ODF, including many people who do not use a recent version of Microsoft Office or, for example, Pages on iOS and even Google Docs.' Of course, that's because Microsoft pushed OOXML as an alternative to ODF a decade ago. If you don't want the same objection to be valid a decade from now, consider making your views known at the Cabinet Office Standards Hub. The deadline is February 26."

Later on the Mayor's office deferred comments to the Police being that:


... they are entitled to violate traffic laws while keeping public safety.



This was not exactly what happened to the former governor Corzine when he had an accident on the GPS that almost cost him his life for not wearing a safety belt.
