Subject OOXML Specs (was RE: ODF 1.2 links)
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 18:49:10 GMT
It's simply easier to download the ECMA versions corresponding to ISO/IEC 29500.  They are
kept synchronized, and the ECMA versions are easier to find and are always free.  This avoids
inadvertently paying the exorbitant ISO fees for their specifications.

To obtain the free versions at ISO/IEC, not the ones normally offered from the ISO site, you
have to know how to find them on a list of all free versions from ISO and go to the trouble
of getting all of the parts and supporting files.  ECMA makes it easier to find all of the
latest ECMA-376 in one place.

Ok great - and I just noticed near the bottom of the page you linked to it states: "ECMA-376
4th edition is technically aligned with ISO/IEC 29500”.

It’s also probably worth updating the link at
(which, ironically, is the top hit on google for the search term “OOXML”).
