Not that I truly care since I already own it, but check this out from www.lifehacker.com:
"Finding that Microsoft had violated a patent on Custom 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 wayâ��which is pretty much all of them at the moment. Microsoft plans to appeal the injunction and $290 million in damages, and likely won't lose the ability to sell its flagship product.

I got accepted to a few websites that I can now write articles for. One of those places is Constant Content. Thankfully, I got approved after taking a short grammar test and submitting a 250 word sample (which IMO is short). Quite frankly, I was scared I got one of questions wrong because I said...
