Easier Access to Office Binary Format Documentation

Brian Jones writes in his blog about some new developments with the Microsoft Office binary file formats.  In summary, Microsoft will make the binary format documentation available directly from its web site, removing any intermediate steps that were previously required.  In addition, Microsoft will make the formats subject to its Open Specification Promise.  There is also an Open Source project that Microsoft is sponsoring for a binary to Open XML conversion tool.  See Brian’s post for the full details.
