Subject: Use of OTF extention for OpenDocument Formula Template


OASIS specified OTF as extension for OpenDocument Formula Template

This is very unfortunate since OTF is already widely used to identify
OpenType CFF fonts. OpenType CFF is, with OpenType TT, one of the two
current major modern font formats and new OpenType fonts are published
all the time. Since Office documents make extensive use of fonts,
collision on user systems is almost guaranteed.


OpenType CFF was here first, has massive usage, and is unlikely to go
away in the short term. Therefore, the OpenDocument Formula Template
extension should be changed to something less ambiguous.
