Based on your interest in IntelliCAD(r) 98, we thought you might
appreciate knowing about the formation of a new group: The OpenDWG Alliance.
It's an association of CAD customers and vendors committed to promoting
AutoCAD's DWG drawing file format as an open, industry-standard format for
the exchange of CAD drawings. As one of the 14 founding members, Visio
Corporation stands firmly behind the Alliance's goals. We believe that
having an open DWG file format will create enormous benefits throughout our
industry-especially for people like you who rely on having access to the
data in your CAD files. If you'd like more information about the Alliance,
or if you'd like to lend your opinion on creating an industry-standard DWG
file format, visit the OpenDWG Alliance Web site at www.opendwg.org. Your
interest is welcome and your participation is encouraged.
