Subject: Re: [opendocument-users] Microsoft Puts Up Misstatements About ODF

One of the things I find interesting about the misinformation[1] is the 
avoidance of the term "OpenDocument" MS is refering to it as "the file 
format for the Open Office product"

To me that suggests that we need to step up efforts to ensure that 
journalists refer to it as OpenDocument and not "OpenDoc" or "Open-Doc" or 
other incorrect names.

Andy Updegrove does an interesting analysis of the MS page:

He does strongly suggest that the text confirms a tight focus on producing 
a standard that is locked into Microsoft Office.
