an Open Document Format Alliance paper that
finds a number of problems with the recent Burton Group Report on
ODF and MSOOXML.
"6. Burton calls ODF "somewhat simple" compared to OOXML. Smile. Being simpler than Microsoft's 6,000-page initial offering is probably not hard to accomplish. Nor is it a bad thing in a standard. Call it a feature, not a bug. You want people to be able to use the standard, after all. Many of the comments that the National Bodies' technical committees offered had to do with the sheer impossibility of even evaluating something so long and complicated in a short space of time.
