As most already know, MS Office files contain headers that convey a
reasonable amount of information about the producer of the document.
This can have ironic side effects, as witnessed in an analysis of
annual report at http://www.macintouch.com/msannual.html.

"The file headers indicate that [Microsoft's] annual report was created
on a Macintosh and not Windows"

The headers also contain the name of the author of the report, who is,
I'm sure, having a bad day today.
