I have been invited to join a subcommittee at the Dutch national institute for standards, NEN. This subcommittee is about document formats, and thus the new OOXML format is being discussed there as that is in its 5 month period for the fast track as requested by Ecma.
I also got a nice box with the paper version of the over 6000 pages specification. Leafing through it gives me a headace every time. I'd rather preserve the trees anyway (its some 45 cm tall)
