Oh dear. 1. To publish test suites of ODF for applications of ODF to check their conformance with the Standard and to confirm their interoperability; 2. To provide feedback, where necessary, to the ODF TC on ways in which the standard could improve interoperability; 3. To produce a set of implementation guidelines; 4. To define interoperability with related standards by the creation of profiles or technical reports; 5. To coordinate, in conjunction with the ODF Adoption TC, OASIS InterOp demos related to ODF; I interpreted item for in context. I.e. guidelines on implementing tests. Not implementing ODF. I wonder how many other misinterpretations there are by myself and other people. AFAIK you are the first person to mention ODF implementation guidelines on this list. regards -- Dave Pawson XSLT XSL-FO FAQ. http://www.dpawson.co.uk
