Re: What's up at the OpenDocument Foundation?

I read somewhere that ODF documents created in KOffice can be automatically altered when imported into OpenOffice in ways that trash the formatting. That's a real issue for me. I'd like to go to all open source...but OpenOffice performs too slowly for me. It's gotten better over the years but Its too still too slow for me to commit to for now. I'd like know that whatever ODF program I use today will create documents that won't get trashed if I want to switch to another ODF compliant program in the future.

From that standpoint what Sam Hiser has been blogging about seems relevant.
