Subject: Open Office TC: Submission for Public Review of commitee draft


the OASIS Open Office TC has recently approved the OASIS Open Document
Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) 1.0 specification as a
Committee Draft and in its last meeting has approved it for public
review (see minutes at
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200412/msg00022.html). The
review shall start at the next possible date,
but not before 3 January 2005. Below is a short
description of the specification and a list of files.


The OpenDocument specification defines an XML schema for office
applications and its semantics. The schema is suitable for office
documents, including text documents, spreadsheets, charts and graphical
documents like drawings or presentations, but is not restricted to these
kinds of documents. The schema provides high-level information
suitable for editing documents. It defines suitable XML structures for
office documents and is friendly to transformations using XSLT or
similar XML-based tools.


The file are available here:

1. The Committee Draft specification is available in OpenOffice.org XML
file format and in PDF format. The committee draft contains three
embedded Relax-NG schemas.
  a) the schema for office documents (specified in chapters 1 to 16),
  b) the normative schema for the manifest file used by OpenDocument
     package format (specified in chapter 17), and
  c) the strict schema for office documents that permits only meta
     information and formatting properties contained in this
     specification itself (specified in appendix A).

The OpenOffice.org XML version of the specification is located at:


The PDF version is at

chapters 1 to 16 of the specification document is available at:
