Hmmm, I thought the issue was whether or not staroffice could be
used to create xls files.  At least that was the your original
question.  I fail to see how the spreadsheet software market
shares of Sun and Microsoft are relevant.  Or are you looking for
an advocacy discussion?  I've used both excel and staroffice,
but I don't feel strongly enough about either one to get into
that sort of discussion with you.
