"... You can paste simple text into Leopard’s version of TextEdit, which can export to .docx. Unfortunately, there are no third-party utilities that can create Open XML files at this point."
".... Microsoft’s newer Open XML file formats (...). These are the default file formats of Office 2008 for Mac, ..... "
So, why don't you just paste the SIMPLE TEXT in Word (a 3rd-party 'utility') and save it as an Open XML there?.. you should get a much better look of what your co-workers are going to see in their Office...

This is off-subject, but I want get something off my chest concerning Pages. Previous versions had the standard "export as html" feature. In the current version this has been replaced by a more limited "Export to iWeb" option. Am I the only person who thinks this new inability to use Pages to create generic Web pages (that can then be further edited and manipulated in page creation apps such as Dreamweaver) is a real bummer?

Watched a PPT slideshow just this morning. Simply painful to watch. Great speaker, really needed help with his slideshow.

The one shinning point I find in iWork is Keynote. I love it, love it, love it. I'm not switching back to power point and people wonder how I make such nice presentations. Unlike Pages and Numbers, I have actually had a few people switch to Keynote and many more who would like to switch but are too afraid to move from Windows. I know, a shame.
