Office Version 12 Will Default to XML Format

Microsoft Office 12, which should be available the second half of 2006, will not default to the popular doc, xls, and ppt formats. Instead, it will default to XML-based formats, e.g., docx, xlsx, and pptx. If you continue to use Office 2000, 2003, or XP, there will be additional software that will allow you to read, edit, and save these XML documents. If you prefer to stay with the current formats, there will be an option in Office 12 that will allow you to do so. [from eWeek]
