18.8.15 dxfs (Formats)

This element contains the master differential formatting records (dxf's) which define formatting for all non-cell formatting in this workbook. Whereas xf records fully specify a particular aspect of formatting (e.g., cell borders) by referencing those formatting definitions elsewhere in the Styles part, dxf records specify incremental (or differential) aspects of formatting directly inline within the dxf element. The dxf formatting is to be applied on top of or in addition to any formatting already present on the object using the dxf record.
