Subject: Spreadsheet Table Protection Options


I'd like to inform the list that my below is now ready.


But there is still one thing to be decided, which is the URI for the
legacy Excel password hash algorithm that we discussed earlier on
another thread.  I remember Rob mentioned something like 'ISO/IEC 29500
Legacy Hash' could be used, but Michael mentioned that it has to be an
URI.  But other than that, I don't remember we ever have reached an
agreed-upon URI that we could use for this.  The hash algorithm itself
is specified in the OOXML spec (albeit incorrectly), but it remains
unnamed if I understand Doug's statement correctly.

If we can use any URI, I can make one up.  But does anyone have any good
suggestion on what to use?

Also, I've incorporated the requirement of double-hashing the legacy
hash values into my proposal as we discussed during the call.
