NEW YORK, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Shares of ScanSoft Inc. (nasdaq: SSFT - news - people) rose as much as 17 percent on Wednesday after it said it has teamed up with Microsoft Corp. (nasdaq: SSFT - news - people) to convert documents into a new Microsoft documents standard.

ScanSoft, whose OmniForm software helps convert paper documents into digital files, said the two companies are developing a simplified way to migrate existing Microsoft Word, paper and PDF forms to Microsoft InfoPath.

InfoPath is based on the so called XML standard that aims to make forms more easily searched

Boy! Microsoft is just picking all kinds of fights, hmm? Now they want to take on Adobe and the PDF.
