UK government officially adopts Open Document Format

Forget It

Edit the sentence:

Quote:

[PDF/A or HTML are now the standard “for viewing government” while ODF is now expected “for sharing or collaborating on government documents.”]

How about the word editing in place of the touchy feel "sharing or collaborating " ?

JavaScript guru slots into Mozilla CTO seat left empty by anti-gay marriage ex-boss

Forget It

meanwhile elsewhere on the web

I encourage all Mozillians to keep going. Firefox OS is even more daunting, and more important. Thanks indeed to all who have supported me, and to all my colleagues over the years, at Mozilla, in standards bodies, and at conferences around the world. I will be less visible online, but still around.

Microsoft Word 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, and Office for Mac 2011 are vulnerable, according to Redmond. Microsoft Office Web Apps, Automation Services on SharePoint Server 2010 and 20103, and Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 when using Word as the email viewer, are also affected.

Their latest Web Apps replicate a bug of Word 2003???

Twikky wikky wikky wee - courtesy of Edward Lear

On a little piece of wood,

Mr. Spikky Sparrow stood;

Mrs. Sparrow sate close by,

A-making of an insect pie,

For her little children five,

In the nest and all alive,

Singing with a cheerful smile

To amuse them all the while,

Twikky wikky wikky wee,

Wikky bikky twikky tee,

Spikky bikky bee!
