Re: Boilerplate copyright agreement for commercial exploitation

- A ".doc" file may render in many different ways, especialy if it
contains macros. Which is definitive, the contract as rendered by MS
Word or by Abiword or by OpenOffice ?

Stick to your "open formats" argument; it serves you better. ODT makes
no guarantees that the documents will look the same across renderers
or platforms. If the apps used exactly the same layout algorithms with
the same fonts, ligature handling, etc. then sure. But they don't.

If you want visual consistency without regard for semantic markup, use
a format that was designed for it, like PDF or TIFF. If you want
semantic markup that will be handled uniformly across editors, use

Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums.
