Microsoft While Office 12, Microsoft's next-generation desktop suite, is not expected to hit Beta 1 until later this fall, Microsoft officials are set to show off a number of its components at the company's annual Professional Developers Conference in mid-September. Recent developer conferences have focused almost exclusively on operating system and tools futures. But this year's will include dozens of tracks aimed at Office developers and users.

Actually, the so-called XML-based file format of Office 2003 are not the same as the ones that will be implemented in MS Office 12. They have nothing to do within each other, so you're locked into a situation where MS uses one different technology / file wrapping method per office release....
