Hi :)
The problem is that not all of those formats are consistent all the time.
Where any of those formats have many different implementations in different
programs, or different versions of the same programs then LibreOffice (and
OpenOffice) tends to be one of the best around.

Some LibreOffice users have been able to help colleagues share files
between different versions of MS Office where their colleagues struggled to
share directly with each other.  Direct sharing of files between different
versions of MS Office is a little hampered by the differences in the
"transitional" specs for 'docX' in MS Office 2007, 2010, 2013 and 365 -
none of which seems happy to open 'strict' OOXML (unlike LibreOffice (and
other non-MS programs&suites) which handles "strict" DocX fine too).

Regards from
Tom :)
