Format review of Section 7 Known Risks with minor wordsmithing

  Sharing test documents in standard document-file formats with projects like AOO and POI
is a valuable opportunity.
  
  == Known Risks ==
- ## Known Risks
+ 
  The biggest risk Corinthia faces is failing to attract a larger community (not only developers
but also testers and documenters). A number of actions has already been taken to minimize
the risk:
- - Contact to student projects (in particular Capstone)
+  * Contact to student projects (in particular Capstone)
- - Talks at ApacheConEU
+  * Talks at Apache''''''Con''''''EU
  
  The project uses existing technologies, so there are no real technological risks.
  
  There is of course a risk that nobody wants to use the project, but the fun building the
community and project make this risk bearable.

  All initial committers have worked several years with open source.

  The initial committers are geographically distributed across the world. Half of the initial
developers are experienced Apache committers and all have experience in working in distributed
development communities.
  
  The original source has already been partly refactored by other developers to make sure
knowledge is spread among multiple people.

  No committers are being paid to participate.
  
- However, it should be mentioned the Peter Kelly and Louis Suarez-Potts have a company that
has added a commercial editor for iPad & iPhone on top of the library. The issue has been
discussed.

  Corinthia has/will have a relation to at least the following projects:
- - **AOO**, core developers have been told on dev@ that for targeting mobile platforms, a
rewrite of AOO would be better than building on top of the existing sources. It is our hope
to have long and beneficial interaction with AOO.

as pure html.

C. We hope to be able to share know-how as well as test cases.

  Corinthia is based on document standards which are used by numerous high-profile projects.
We would like to cooperate with the projects to exchange knowledge.
