Hi all


In line with its Open Source / Open Standards policy, the SA government
has made ODF, GML and various other open standards national standards
for all government communication. See message and article below. The
Tectonic article has a link to the official pdf with all the detail.

ODF is the "Open Document Format", a file standard for spreadsheets,
word processor documents, and other office productivity applications.
It's similar to Microsoft's .xls, .doc, etc formats, only open for
anyone to implement :-)

ODF is the primary document format of the open source OpenOffice suite.
