Following on from previous threads, this is good news for LibreOffice:

"Government documents will use what are known as open standards for
document formats. Word processor files will be saved with “.odt”
suffixes, rather than “.doc”."

Wow! Excellent stuff. Now for an LO user specific question...

states that ODF 1.2 is prefered and will be used ( also see:
). So LO 4.1 default is set to ODF 1.2 Extended (recommened), however
there are these ODF 1.2 options to choose from
(Tools|Options|Load/Save|General[Default file format and ODF settings]):

ODF 1.2
ODF 1.2 Extended (compat mode)
ODF 1.2 Extended (recommened)

Does anyone know:
1. What the difference is between 'ODF 1.2 Extended (compat mode)' and
'ODF 1.2 Extended (recommened)'?
2. If using 'ODF 1.2 Extended (recommened)' will cause issues with the
UK Gov 'ODF 1.2'?

Where is Dennis E. Hamilton when you need him? :-)
