Microsoft launches Office 2011 for Mac, bringing Mac users the latest versions of the company's productivity software.

While demonstrating Outlook for Mac and the HTML rendering engine, Microsoft employees revealed that instead of using the Word HTML rendering, Microsoft has moved over to Apple's Webkit rendering engine to render HTML mails. Outlook 2011 also uses WebKit to create HTML mail.

For those of you who didn't like Entourage's HTML mail, Outlook's WebKit mail, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
