1.5 Applicability Statement
This document specifies a persistence format for word processing document content and templates, which can include text, images, tables, custom XML schemas applied to the content, and page layout information. This persistence format is applicable when the document content is intended to flow across a set of pages as necessary for a particular media, and when the document can be printed. This persistence format is not applicable when exact reproduction of a specific representation of the content across various media and devices is desired.
This persistence format is applicable for use as a stand-alone document, and for containment within other documents as an embedded object as specified by [MS-OLEDS].
This persistence format provides interoperability with applications that create or read documents conforming to this structure<1>.
