So for all those people that still believe that OOXML is in good shape and might just need a few corrections. It might be a bit more complicated.
I am just reading the “IS 29500:2008 Defect Report Log [At Closure of the DCOR1 and FDAM1 Sets]”. This is a very interesting 809 pager. Note: The ODF Spec is around 700 pages. So the defect report for OOXML effectively outperforms ODF pagecountwise 😉
ATM just the numbers, so you get a feeling for what is going on (or should I say wrong?).
|Further Consideration Required||78|
|Closed, to be incorparated in COR1||175|
|Closed, to be incorparated in AMD11||24|
|Closed without Action||9|
Wow. Will now start to go through the details. Will take time. But with that amount of defects in place, how can anyone safely implement OOXML according to IS29500?
