Response to: OpenOffice uses XML format!

Yes and the context of Kapor's statement is interoperability with MS Office. This means that OpenOffice must be able to handle the XML format being adopted in the next version of Office.

If I read Kapor right, the idea is to encourage convergence between the two DTDs in order to facilitate interoperability.
