100% fidelity?

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 3:12 pm

Rob Weir did a import/export from MSOffice, OpenOffice.org and GNumeric. It’s an interesting read.

There is one point which Weir is prepared to consigned to different applications setting but I have to respectfully disagree. I cannot agree that the colour of the chart is different is as a result of different applications using different default colour. With OOXML, that should not happened. As an end user, although I accept that different applications will give you different colour, and that their rendering of graphics can be different (look at the line graph), but if you say full fidelity, I am not willing to accept that colour difference does not matter.

I might had used default value in MSOffice, but I do expects MSOffice to store the colour information (not nothing or the word default) to allow me to see the same colour in another application.
