New MS XML file format

The Mac BU today announced it will support the announced by Microsoft for its forthcoming Office 12 software package. The new open-standard-based XML fromat will replace Microsoft's traditional binary file, allowing users to more easily exchange data within the Office suite and with other applications. Microsoft said that the new Microsoft Office XML Open Format is based on an open-standard with a royalty-free license that is broadly accessible to any technology provider. The Mac BU said it would provide Office for Mac users with the ability to take advantage of benefits of the new file format and container technology, which will include easier recovery of corrupted documents, improved security and smaller file sizes. The Mac BU will support the new file formats and work to enable forward compatibility with future Office releases.
