Rejecting the CDF hot air.

First, CDF isn't a format. You know this full well. CDF is a way of combining multiple formats, it's a container. So, unless you're making up a completely new proprietary language, you're saying that you think XHTML is enough to store office documents in.

Second, the CDR isn't a testing regime - where on earth did you get that from? The CDR is a way of referencing other documents and doing stuff like propagating events. It says _nothing_ about conformance to document standards, go read it: http://www.w3.org/TR/CDR/




Wake us up when you've actually got some CDF files to show us. Assuming it's not more RTF serialized as XML, which no-one except MS Office has a hope in hell of understanding.
