XML is a specification though, is it not? One can implement it in any way
desired and rest assured that Microsoft's handling of XML in Office will
remain closed-source, much like the rest. Precedence would suggest that,
e.g. lack of compliance, bugs, and 'extensions' in CSS and (X)HTML.
Standards and Open Source are separate things. Open, free and ^Free
Just my opinion,
