Hi :)
Interesting choice of words to describe how accurately it read/writes DocX.  Instead of saying "accurately" or 
"precisely" they carefully choose to use the word "faithfully".  A slightly more "woolly" word that lets them 
get away with errors that are likely to appear.

What terminology do others, such as Google Docs, use? I suspect they are using this terminology to avoid lawsuits from people who do not realize msox formats are proprietary when as you note the inevitable gibberish occurs.

Is it any good compared to LibreOffice ?

Wanted to have your opinion !
It does not appear to be open source, so it does not offer its users either a guarantee of 
continuity or any of the other benefits that arise from software freedom.
