How does OpenDocument compare to other standards?

There are some standards that address single features of office applications, like SVG for graphic content or HTML and XSL-FO for text content, but none of these covers all features of office applications. The OpenDocument OASIS Standard covers the features required by text, spreadsheets, charts, and graphical documents, but also 'borrows' from similar, existing standards wherever possible and permitted.
