Creating Office2007 documents in C#

I've been too busy implementing <A class="" href="http://www.phpexcel.net/" target=_blank mce_href="http://www.phpexcel.net">SpreadsheetML</A> in PHP, that I completely forgot to write something on OpenXML and C# on my blog. Luckily, Joris did now: <A class="" href="http://jopx.blogspot.com/2007/09/generating-office-2007-documents-in-c.html" target=_blank mce_href="http://jopx.blogspot.com/2007/09/generating-office-2007-documents-in-c.html">Generating Office 2007 documents in C#</A>. Now learn some PHP too, Joris, I can use a hand on PHPExcel [:P]
