It is called LotusLive Symphony.  It is a cloud-based collaborative 
editor, in what we call the "Greenhouse".  Think of it as an open beta or 
tech preview.  You can read more and sign up for a free account here:


We're using ODF for this.  So far, the main technical challenges have been 
with the different models using style hierarchies used in ODF versus CSS. 
So not the underlying formatting vocabularies, but the hierarchies and the 
mechanisms used to resolve which style is effective for a given element. 
ODF and CSS have very different ways of doing this.
