Information about DOTX and DOC file formats

Full name DOTX, Word Open XML Document Template DOC - Microsoft Word Binary File Format
File extension .dotx .doc
MIME type application/msword application/msword
Developed by Microsoft Microsoft
Type of format Document document file format
Description DOTX files are, like DOT files, template files created by Microsoft's word processing programs. In these template files, information like layout and setting, different styles, AutoText, macros, and toolbars are included. By using a DOTX file, creating documents with the same formatting is made a lot easier. There are DOTX files already generated by the Microsoft Word program, but by altering the so called Normal.DOTX file, the users can create their very own template files for example for business letters or envelopes. DOC is a filename extension for word processing documents, most commonly in the proprietary Microsoft Word Binary File Format. In Microsoft Word 2007 and later, the binary file format was replaced as the default format by the Office Open XML format, though Microsoft Word can still produce DOC files.
Technical details In contrast to DOT files, files with the DOTX extension use the newer and higher developed XML-based document format of Microsoft Word which has been introduced to the Microsoft Office package in 2007. Thus, DOTX files can be opened by any version of Microsoft Word 2007 and newer, and older versions that support the Open XML component. DOTX files inherit the XML architecture alongside with ZIP compression to keep the file size relatively low. Binary DOC files often contain more text formatting information (as well as scripts and undo information) than some other document file formats like Rich Text Format and HyperText Markup Language, but are usually less widely compatible.
