Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

The following are three separate Google search results, the first showing an OOXML file with the extension .DOCX, the second an older binary format MS Word file with the extension .DOC and the third an ODF file with the extension .ODT.  If you have the appropriate application to read these files, each will open with the main link, but I am interested in the results of the View as HTML link for each, so I have shown a partial screen print for each below.  This happens in both IE and Firefox on Windows XP, but I don't know who is responsible for doing something about that.  It currently makes it impossible for me to read the .DOCX results without a compatible application installed.
