    Hi Mr Jones,

    This isn’t a comment specifically about this post, but I wanted to give you a message that I hope you can pass on to the right people, and see that it gets addressed.  The Sun OpenOffice developers have discovered that the Windows documentation needed to make their product work properly with Vista is lacking.  

    They blogged about it here:

    Could you please see that Microsoft responds to this?  

    Thank you.

    Hi Brian,

    Excellent resource! This tool will now allow developers easy access to those Open XML Formats in Office 2007. Finally, all developers can easily retrieve, store, and use all those office files that have been sitting on their servers and directories all over the place but have been difficult to use in applications, etc. etc. The combination of Open XML Formats in Office 2007 along with tools like Altova’s XMLSpy or MapForce is like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Thanks to Microsoft & Altova!

    Only problem is that XmlSpy went from a nice $60 program to one that now has a $500 per license cost. And they got rid of their Home version which was free unfortunately. Too bad I can’t recommend it for work here, it just costs way too much now.
