XML File Format for Office 12 files

Microsoft adding XML file formats to Office 12 XML-based file formats for Excel, PowerPoint and Word in Office 12 are expected to free up data and improve security. The new files will be compatible with existing documents, and a free downloadable "converter" will allows users of Office 2000 and later to work with the new formats. Users will have the option to not use the new files in Office 12, but the XML formats will be set as defaults in the three applications when the package ships, sometime in the second half of 2006.
