ODF Approved as Official Standard Format

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) finally published the Open Document Format (ODF) as an official standard last week after approving it as an international standard last May. The ODF file format—the XML-based open format for text, spreadsheet, database, and presentation files
Quote:
ODF is being championed as the accessible file format by accessibility groups, as the open standard must face public peer review to evaluate its accessibility as opposed to other, proprietary formats (such as .doc). Since it is specified as a public document, the idea is that anyone can create software for it under any platform at any time for those with disabilities without worrying about royalties or implementation barriers, not to mention those who simply like being able to move files around without concerning themselves with incompatible formats.
