I am curious: what happens if one just changes the file extension
from .doc to .docx?

Roughly the same as if you call your cat Rover.

sorry I cut the thread but the OP was concerned about the 'politics'
of submitting '.doc' files to people obsessed with '.docx' files so
why not just change the extension and meet the 'political' issue but
avoid getting one's hands dirty with '.docx' formatting? that was the
point of the question. would Word get confused by the extension change?


My idea is to show that whatever MS does with file formats that you are
not required to use MSO at all. I deal with many users whose technical
literacy is nil and think that to open or generate a MSOX format file
you must have MSO 2007/2010. It is guerrilla marketing because
eventually it comes out that I am not using MSO at all but can handle
their file formats without difficulty. One of my goals is to say to
someone I know it can be done because I do it regularly when I recommend
LO to someone and it is not some marketing claim that needs to be verified.
