Comment from: firstname.lastname@example.org Are you looking to unify XHTML and the new Open Office XML Format ? There should be no distinction between the two, and web browsers could simply choose to ignore "accurate formatting directives" in order to display the document. It would be a tragedy for the industry which would set us back another 40 years if the new Open Office Format cannot be considered to be a subsequent enhancement of XHTML. There should be no distinction ever again between a document and a web document. A pet peeve, I noticed in your list of requirements that you do not say "suitable for documents containing hyperlinks and function links e.g. emailto links".
