Why OOXML should be rejected

09 Mar

This is a technical presentation regarding the MS Open XML format which is currently in its ISO fast track to be standardized. This presentation covers the subject from many sides. OOXML should not be an ISO standard for many reasons as shown in the presentation.The presentation shows the lack of support of languages that based on Arabic script. Also a missing Islamic specific requirements. I’m asking all National Bodies around the world to reject OOXML in the current fast track and instead of having dual-standards, MS should improve the current approved ODF standard (OpenDocument format). Please watch the presentation carefully and let me know your comments.

    do you mind sharing it with a free format? ODF, PDF or something? instead of flash.
