OpenDocument now an Oasis Standard

IBM, Sun Microsystems, and Others Develop Royalty-Free Standard for Office Applications Document Format.

I predict great things for the OpenDocument notation. BRW, if you have't yet seen OpenOffice, you really, really, should take a few minutes to look at it.

From the press release:
    "XML doesn't always mean open. You can hide a lot in a file format." -- James Governor, principal analyst at RedMonk

Ain't that the truth.
