RE: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions

Everything but the binary.  There are known cases where binaries are the
answer.  Mobile systems running rich media content need them.   I don't
think they are going to roll over on their business because the XML
community says so.

I don't expect a sudden upsurge in OOXML.  IT spending may be flat overall
in Federal sectors particularly in the United States where monies are being
redirected to offset the results of tax cuts while a war is being waged.


From: Rick Jelliffe [mailto:rjelliffe@allette.com.au] 

*> I expect more governments as well as organizations with archiving 
requirements will ban binary and non-ISO-standard formats: a hierarchy 
of ISO HTML (really W3C XHTML), ISO ODF, ISO OOXML and ISO PDF will be 
established by order of preference/interoperability/fidelity.  So 
archiving organizations would start accepting OOXML and updating their 
old binary files to OOXML, while inter-office documents and tenders will 
be required to use ODF, for example.
