Gray Matter : On Harmonization: DIN releases early draft of Open XML / ODF Translation report

Check the draft DIN report (pdf) -- looks like a great piece of constructive work.

Picking up on the harmonization topic again, it appears that DIN has published an early draft of their report on translation between the two formats. The report outlines some preliminary findings in the feature differences between the format specs, and outlines some principles for what it thinks appropriate conversion scenarios are. It is great to see IQ being placed in this topic area, rather than the voodoo of wishing your neighbors cows will die :).
