Subject RE: OOo, ODF 1.2 extended format and Word: is the possibility to open OOo generated file by word ed as bug?
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2012 17:39:54 GMT
 1. I agree that this is something to try at the Plugfest.  

 2. It would be unfortunate were Microsoft ODF 1.2 support to require the attribute (thus
rejecting existing OO.o and LO documents that don't have it) or to produce it (thus causing
the down-level problem for themselves in their existing ODF 1.1 consumers).

My understanding is that Microsoft intends to report on provisions for ODF in the next version
of Microsoft Office at the time of the Brussels plugfest.  That may not be current information,
it is just the only information I've seen.

It would be good to know what Microsoft will do with their next
version of Office as well, e.g., whether they will have this same
issue.  I'd hate to make a change, and then have next version of
Office suddenly require that attribute and reject docs otherwise.
Maybe something to try at the Brussels Plugfest.
