iPhone supports Open XML

Amid the news on iWork ‘08 from Apple, a suite of three Mac applications called Keynote, Pages and Numbers, comes word that the Apple folks are supporting the Open XML format, a sometimes controversial format that is touted by Microsoft. Also, according to MS’s Brian Jones writing on his blog, the iPhone supports OPen XML formats. He has pulled together a list of Open XML-compatible applications on his blog.

Among the jewels there is a CodePlex project that is creating a set of PHP classes which allow you to read and write Open XML-friendly SpreadsheetML files, and an Open XML library for Java on SourceForge, known as OpenXML4J.
