Microsoft Ordered To Stop Selling Word

Finding that Microsoft had violated a patent on XML usage owned by i4i of Toronto, a Texas judge ordered Microsoft to stop selling any Word products within 60 days that use XML coding in any way—which is pretty much all of them at the moment. Microsoft plans to appeal the injunction and $US290 million in damages, and likely won't lose the ability to sell its flagship product. Still, it's not exactly great timing for a day when Microsoft planned to announce Office availability on Nokia phones.
