"Yoon Kit and myself have spent countless weekends and many, many, many man hours finding ways of improving the proposed standard."

Your (both) hard work on improving OOXML has been amply documented on Open Malaysia Blog and is recognized by others (me included).

We know from the reaction of Ecma and MS to your efforts, and those of many others, how very little MS were interested in improving OOXML.

The personal attacks are another indicator of how low MS valued any input to the standardization process.

Remember, this is NOT really a standardization process for MS. This is a "rubber stamp" process so they can continue to use MS Office with their proprietary formats, and CLAIM that they are open. I don't think that MS will _ever_ actually implement OOXML, or at least not in compliance with the "standard" (if it ever gets off the ground). They need this standard to survive in the world market, and they are fighting as if their life depended on it.
