Subject: Re: [office] 1.7 Mimetypes: Extensions?


according to RFC2048, 2.2.9 extensions are optional. We haven't 
requested the MIME types so far, because we don't have a public 
specification so far, so we still may discuss whether we want to specify 
extensions or not. However, I suggest that we do that in the 2nd phase, 
but of course before the register MIME types.

Is KOffice using the sx? extensions StarOffice and OpenOffice.org are using?
