Welcome to OpenDocument

This is the official community gathering place and information resource for the OpenDocument Format (ODF) OASIS Standard (ISO/IEC 26300). Suitable for text, spreadsheets, charts, graphs, presentations, and databases, ODF frees documents from their applications-of-origin, enabling them to be exchanged, retrieved, and edited with any OpenDocument-compliant software or tool. This is a community-driven site, and the public is encouraged to contribute content.

Interoperability Testing and Resources?

I am interested in any resources regarding the testing of interoperability of either ODF or OOXML.  The only resource I am aware of is the partially completed test suite for ODF.  Is there anything else available?  Has anyone seen any studies or research regarding interoperability testing for document formats? 

Thank you
