Subject: Groups - OpenDocument Formula Specification 2008-06-04 (ODT) (OpenDocument-formula-20080604.odt) uploaded

Minor tweaks:
* Made it MUCH more obvious how to display the unannotated version (by
bolding, etc., the instructions on page 2).
* Added to "What OpenFormula doesn't include": 'a special summarize data
mechanism that presents many different statistical values of a set of data
(e.g., average, minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, maximum,
standard deviation, and mode). If desired, applications may implement such
a mechanism using a wizard to create a set of (labeled) formulas for each
of these statistical values, using the formula language defined here. Such
summaries can then be exchanged normally.'
* Added to "What OpenFormula doesn't include": 'a mechanism to detect
likely errors in formula. However, by defining the format and semantics of
formulas, it enables the creation of them.'
* Clarified that Error is NOT the same as string.

The document revision named OpenDocument Formula Specification 2008-06-04
(ODT) (OpenDocument-formula-20080604.odt) has been submitted by David
Wheeler to the OpenDocument - Formula document repository.  This document
is revision #66 of openformula-spec-20060221.odt.

Document Description:
OpenFormula is an open format for exchanging recalculated formulas between
office application implementations, particularly for spreadsheets.
OpenFormula defines the types, syntax, and semantics for calculated
formulas, including many predefined functions and operations, so that
formulas can be exchanged between applications and produce substantively
equal outputs when recalculated with equal inputs. Both closed and open
source software can implement OpenFormula.

OpenFormula is intended to be a supporting document to the Open Document
Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) format, particularly for
defining its attributes table:formula and text:formula. It can be used in
other circumstances where a simple, easy-to-read infix notation is desired
for exchanging recalculated formulas.
