This document specifies the Office Forms Binary File Formats. This file format applies to Office Forms. Office Forms are a collection of controls that can be embedded in client applications and stored as part of a file. Office Forms controls can be used to provide additional interactive surfaces, such as command buttons, check boxes, or option buttons, to the user. The client application provides the location and requests the type of persistence; the structure of the persistence is determined by Office Forms for binary formats and by the client application for text formats.
Sections 1.7 and 2 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
