Microsoft deprecating OOXML Functionality

According to open standards advocate Russell Ossendryver, Microsoft will be deprecating certain functionality in its Microsoft Office Open XML specification. Ossendryver says the move is an attempt to quiet critics of the specification in the run up to the crucial February ISO vote. The Microsoft-led industry standards group formally offering OOXML confirms in a 21 December 2007 announcement that issues related to the ‘leap year bug’, VML, compatibility settings such as ‘AutoSpaceLikeWord95’ and others will be ‘extracted from the main specification and relocated to an independent annex in DIS 29500 for deprecated functionality.’
