abraços Marcelo Brazil Endorses ODF As Recommended Standard With the publication of version 2.0 of its e-Ping Interoperability Framework, Brazil becomes the first country in South America to officially recommend ODF. The framework states that all .xls, .doc and .ppt files are in transition, meaning they do not comply anymore with its technical policies, and that ODF is now the Brazilian Government's officially recommended format.

The move was propelled by the so-called Carayon Report, which recommended, among other things, that documents be saved in ODF and that ODF be used by governments throughout the EU.
