| IT.
| In Denmark, there is heated debate about the
| approach for open IT usage by the
| government. One of the obstacles is the open
| file format for mandatory use by the
| government and government organizations. ODF
| (Open Document Format) and OOXML (Open
| Office XML), originally developed by
| Microsoft, are the candidates for use.
| The Dutch Ministry of Finance shared with
| Denmark the experience and knowledge it has
| gained from the national plan Heemskerk and
| the resulting action plan "Nederland Open in
| Verbinding" (NOiV). Finance spokesman Edwin
| van Scherrenburg confirmed to Dutch IDG news
| site Webwereld that the two governments are
| in contact. "We have shared all information
| regarding NOiV," he said.
