Hi Alexander, (I'm mostly a lurker too) > To store formatted information and pictures? > To represent a document in a typographically perfect way? Pixel precision may not be achievable but that doesn't mean that we should have pointless and unnecessary variation. It's a goal that may never be reached (without identical codebases, as Thomas Zander says) but on the way to achieving it I'm sure we'll turn up useful examples of unnecessary variation that should be ironed out. To me there's a world of difference between arbitrary or accidental variation (which unfortunately exists between many office suites) and intentional differences, and we should be identifying the former. -- .Matthew Holloway http://holloway.co.nz/ http://docvert.org/ << Word, OpenDocument to HTML
