XML Documents for Microsoft Office 12

Microsoft officially announced new open XML Office File Formats for its next Office Suite 12, it will replaces the old binary format as the new default format but will continue full support for the old format including the distribution of a free downloadable "converter" that allows users of older Office versions to work with the new formats.

But what of the benefits? I’m not sure yet what Microsoft has in mind as innovative uses for the new format but certain things come to mind like the easy integration of various files and the ability to access data from various documents without opening individual files, and hopefully we can view documents as RSS feeds.

More details will be out soon, so we’ll have to wait.

Hi man ;)

The reason the are using XML is that it will make it easier for developers to create software that interoperates with back-end systems. This XML support will also boost the creation of Microsoft Office InfoPath forms, which can be used to extract and analyze data without leaving the Office interface.

You're right, and another thing came to my mind ,with the new XML file format, Office documents will not be close anymore they'll be open to all developers to write programs that can read and even right the documents, something similar to Office, maybe even OpenOffice will have full compatability with MS Office files.
