Hi Jim, all

Jim Seymour wrote
I read that as "compatible with the ODF standard, as implemented in
LO."  I.e.: LO uses the ODF standard.  Does MS Office?

Did I read that wrong?  Or does LO not properly implement the ODF

As Italo mentioned LO is backwards compatible with all ODF specifications.
But since LO is pushing the ODF file format, the current LO implementation
is more advanced than the current approved OASIS standard (e.g. LO supports
font embedding)

So it's not a case that LO is not implementing the existing ODF standards
but that it is already improving on them (in an open manner, unlike MS XML).
So OASIS has to catch up :)

Hope this makes it clear ;)
