Interoperability Study for ODF and OOXML


I recently finished a study on interoperability for ODF (and OOXML).  Not surprisingly, we found problems with interoperability for various implementations. More details and the full study is available at:

I would appreciate any feedback.



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
