LXer: Microsoft gets Ecma nod - But IBM says "Nay" to ECMA committee


ECMA International has approved the creation of a technical committee to standardize Microsoft's Office Open XML document formats, according to a representative at IBM, which is an ECMA member. IBM voted against the creation of the committee and Hewlett Packard abstained, the IBM spokesperson said.<br><br> The first meeting of the technical committee is expected to take place on December 15. In late November, Microsoft announced it plan to standardize the XML-based document formats of Office through ECMA, and then ISO, in part to ensure that customers, notably governments, can have long-term access to documents.
