How MS is making their responses to OOXML comments "accessible".

    I just ran across this blob by Rob Weir. It's on how the ECMA process on OOXML is closing itself to the public, and not only to the public, but to committee members as well. MS claims to have resolved 662 complaints/comments on OOXML. Here is the process for finding out about MS's claims of resolving issues and what MS defines as "transparent". All I can say is that MS has quite an odd definition of the word. It looks to me like more double speak in which black is white, dark is light, opaque is transparent, etc....

    Contrast how MS is doing things with how the ODF process worked. Read the entire article. It's quite an eye opener.

    You can read the rest of Rob's blob on this at the link below.
