The Web is all about open formats like XML.  When you combine open XML-based Office formats with a rich client technology like Silverlight, cool things are possible.

Tim Sneath sat down earlier this week with Chris Auld from Intergen, a New Zealand-based partner, to talk about TextGlow, a Silverlight-based viewer for Word documents built using the Open XML standard. This is a really interesting way to share documents on the Internet – there’s no need to install Office or convert the files to PDF format, since TextGlow can open and display the original document.
