Open XML Spec: 3975 pages!


I’ve mentioned before some of the challenges we’ve had this product cycle, but it’s hard to really express the scope and scale of things sometimes. Today, I got some help. One of the major changes under the hood this product cycle is support for the new Open XML based file format. The format has been submitted to ECMA and after approval there, it will go onto ISO for approval. You can find the full spec online. Well, 24 MB of compressed PDF and 3975 pages later, you’ll have all you need to understand the details of the new file format. Now, that’s what I call documentation! (via Brian Jones)
