About This Site

This site was created to serve as a reference for those with an interest in documents, document assembly, and document programming. The focus is on the OOXML specification for Microsoft documents, and so far, only word processing documents, though we are working to include the other OOXML office documents and markup languages. But as OOXML is not the only office document specification, and certainly not the first, we believe it is important to be aware of competing and complimentary document formats. For this reason we attempt to cover related concepts in other formats, such as CSS and the OASIS open document format of Open Office.

The site is not an exhaustive explication of the OOXML specification. We cover what we believe a majority of those working in English-speaking countries would need to know, but certainly there is much that is omitted. This is just a slice.
