WW8 is just "WinWord 8", i.e. what Microsoft calls [MS-DOC], using ww8
to refer to xls/ppt is misleading.

Maybe just use the extension for all the cases? That's easy to
understand for everyone, unlike WW8, OOXML, ODF, and others.

BTW, Joel: I have no problem with whiteboard renames, though if you
could please:

1) Send a mail to this list when you did rename them and

2) Do it with a script, so for the casual developer the rename is more
or less atomic

That would be excellent and make our lives much easier. :-)
