Uniform Office Format from China
The topic of if China would be content to use western developed standards came up at the China New Media conference I have been attending in Brisbane. One I just noticed is that China developed an XML based "Uniform Office Format" (UOF), similar to the ODF standard. There would seem to be no good reason why the world would need another XML based office format, but then Microsoft have proposed one, so why not China?
