Information about HWP and DOC file formats

Name HWP DOC
Full name HWP, Hanword Document DOC - Microsoft Word Binary File Format
File extension .hwp .doc
MIME type application/msword
Developed by Hancom Microsoft
Type of format Document document file format
Description The full name of the HWP file extension is a Hanword Document. Hanword was previously known as Hangul Word Processor; Hangul being the alphabet used in the Korean language. This word processing system has the ability to save documents that are written in Hangul. It is a very popular word processing system within Korea, but isn’t used as much outside of the country. The HWP word processing system is a typical word processing document and contains many of the same word processing functionality as many other systems. This includes the standard use of text and graphics, along with formatting functions. 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 There is a great deal of inconsistency as to whether HWP files can be opened by Microsoft products. This is because of dramatic changes in the HWP file format as well as changes with the Microsoft product line. OpenOffice.org has the ability to open a document that was created in Hangul 97. However, because of changes with the Hangul software, documents created later than that cannot be opened in OpenOffice. Because of this inconsistency, Hangul users frequently work with HWP files and send them to others without knowing that the recipient will no longer be able to open them. However the files can still be converted via an online document converter. 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.
