Abstract Does it matter how a computer program stores its data? If there is only one program that manipulates that data, and the files are never shared with anyone else, the answer is "no." But such exclusive use is rare, at least for the files we use every day. Typically we want to share our files---photos, spreadsheets, you name it---with others. This means that the data must be interpreted properly by the applications used by others. And sometimes the way data is stored becomes a political battle.
