More OOXML controversy

According to the IHT,  the South African Bureau of Standards is appealing the ratification of OOXML as a standard. Something which, coupled with the recent announcement that the Dutch Council of State is open sourcing its document conversion tool certainly makes either adopting ODF, or sitting on the fence by continuing to use .doc seem to be the way to go for the moment.

A wholesale conversion to OOXML certainly looks very unlikely anytime soon
