OOXML is in wordpad !!

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. :)
