Non-security-related fixes that are included in this security update

This security update fixes the issues that are described in the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
948950 Description of the 2007 Office hotfix package: February 26, 2008
950132 Description of the 2007 Office hotfix package: March 12, 2008
953474 Description of the 2007 Office system hotfix package: June 10, 2008
This security update also fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

  You have documents in the Microsoft Office Open XML file format that use versioning and extensibility markup. For example, the documents are created in Word 2010 or Word for Mac 2011. When these documents are opened in 2007 Microsoft Office system applications, spaces are missing between some words in the document. After the document is saved, these spaces are removed permanently, even when the document is reopened in a newer version of Word. This update will help prevent Word 2007 from removing spaces when opening documents in this scenario.  

This issue may occur when you work with documents that are created in an application such as Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac.
