LXer: U.S. Votes for Modified OOXML Standards

Published at LXer:

The United States has voted for approval of a modified version of the Office Open XML (OOXML) standard for business documents. The International Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) Executive Board is the U.S. Technical Advisory Group for ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1, and casts this country's vote on information technology standards. It is comprised of 17 voting members, including three from the federal government: the Homeland Security and Defense departments and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
