Features, Office Microsoft intends to submit file formats for its new Office 12 applications to the European standards body ECMA International. The company hopes this will allay concern about its level of control over document formats. Update by AS: For the curious, here's a sample Office 12 file and a sample XPS file. (Note: Right click > Save As..., we're not configured to serve these files just yet.)

All these problem(s) have already been solved.

Save your documents you intend to store for 100 years in ASCII format and be done with it.

People spend more time re-inventing the wheel and re-hashing the same shit over and over I swear.
