+<h2 id="introduction">Introduction</h2>
+<p>Along with an email client and a web browser, an office suite is a core essential
+application that almost every computer user requires. Although there is a dominant
+ commercial product in this category, its price and limited platform and language 
+support makes it an unsatisfactory option for many. OpenOffice, for over a decade,
+ has helped fill this gap. Our goal is to develop, publish and support OpenOffice 
+as a world-class office suite, free for anyone to use, and since it is open source,
+free for anyone to build upon. Using the generally available discounted price of 
+commercial office products, the value of OpenOffice downloads over the past decade
+exceeds USD 10 billion (10,000,000,000).</p>
+<h2 id="overcoming-the-digital-divide">Overcoming the "Digital Divide"</h2>
+<p>More than 40% of the world population lives on less than US$ 2 per day, and around

+20% live on less than US$ 1 per day. Against these numbers, commercial 
+shrink-wrapped office software is often seen as a luxury good. End-user facing 
+open source software, like OpenOffice, brings high-quality software to those who 
+would otherwise have no other affordable options. Within the ICT for Development 
+(ICT4D) community, OpenOffice has long been an important part of achieving 
+development goals.</p>
+<h2 id="support-for-linguistic-and-cultural-diversity">Support for Linguistic and Cultural
+<p>There are over 6,000 languages in the world, but unless the language is associated

+with a G20 economic superpower, commercial vendors tend to ignore it. The 
+OpenOffice community has a long standing tradition of supporting a large number 
+of languages, including languages used by smaller populations, minority languages, 
+endangered languages, etc. For example, South Africa has 11 official languages. 
+OpenOffice has been translated to all of them. By supporting languages that would 
+not otherwise be supported we help reduce "digital exclusion" and promote 
+development, local education and administration.</p>
+<h2 id="accessibility">Accessibility</h2>
+<p>Persons with disabilities, especially those with visual impairments, commonly 
+rely on "assistive technology" to interact with computers. Such technologies 
+work well only when applications are designed and coded to work well with them. 
+Additionally, users who create documents must do their part to ensure that the 
+documents they create work well with assistive technology, for example through 
+the use of image captions, consistent list levels, etc. The OpenOffice project 
+aims to provide strong accessibility support, both in the core product and 
+including broader ecosystem support via extensions, for working with Braille 
+printers, exporting to DAISY talking books, etc.</p>
+<h2 id="open-standards">Open Standards</h2>
+<p>Open standards are those standards which are created in an open, transparent 
+process, where the specifications can be freely accessed and implemented without 
+royalties. Most core web standards are open standards. The default document format 
+in OpenOffice, OpenDocument Format (ODF) is also an open standard. Widespread use 
+of open standards promotes interoperability and choice in the market. But this 
+does not come without effort on our part. We commit to faithful implementation 
+of open standards, and to work with standards organizations and other vendors 
+to improve these standards and to test and improve interoperability.</p>

+  Apache OpenOffice is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation
(ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator.
+  Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates
that the infrastructure, communications, and
+  decision making process  have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF
projects. While incubation status is
+  not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate
that the project has
+  yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.</p>
