Letter writing campaign OOXML efforts to be accepted as ISO standard

In April, the ITSC received a letter from a Singapore company expressing support for the MS OOXML standard. What was amazing is that the letter was so plain and was nothing more than a fill-in-the-template deal. I did a quick search, and found four [1], [2], [3], [4] others with essentially the same prose except for the company name and related contact details.

Microsoft, through their “business partners” are cranking up “support” for the flawed OOXML standard and we need to ensure that it either fails completely from becoming an ISO standard OR every detail of their stuff is published and open.
