I downloaded a .docx file to my Windows 7 VPC, and thought I would have to copy it over to where I had Word installed. But much to my delight, Wordpad in Windows 7 recognizes and opens .docx files.
You can open and safe files in OOXML format (that’s the .docx format), ODF format for those open office folks, and of course rtf and txt are still there.
I like this !! I can see a lot more uses for Vb’s xml literals and creating .docx files, as the prevalence of the .docx format expands.
