OOXML is a recent example of questionable honesty, too
Authored by: Steve Martin on Friday, March 08 2013 @ 06:57 AM EST

The ISO has approved one, and only one, standard for creating new office documents - Open Document Format.

Um I'm a bit confused. If that's true, then what is the (admittedly infamous and controversial) ISO/IEC 29500:2008?

I respectfully must point out that your title contains an error

"Questionable"? Hardly! I don't think that the Groklaw community has the slightest need to "question" the typical behaviour of M$, which is largely hard fact, as established in several court cases etc.

OOXML is hardly a valid standard. A standard must be able to
stand alone and be fully described and defined within the
standard and any referenced standards. Referenced standards
must meet the same requirement, so that once all the standards
are collected, you can completely establish exact
behavior/functionality. Having things like "in the way of
[some closed/unstandardized product]" violates this.
Shame on ISO for allowing such trash.

But.... OOXML does have functionality ODF doesn't

.... unless MS actually removed that requirement to have the year 1900 designated as a leap year...
