|Description||WPD is a text document file format created by Satellite Systems International for their WordPerfect word processing software in 1980. It is a historically popular word processing file format, which can also be opened by most versions of Microsoft Word. Development of the DOS and Macintosh versions of WordPerfect were stopped in 1997 but the Windows version is still under active development by current owners Corel. WordPerfect was the top selling word processing software during the 1980's and early 1990's, and retains a big fanclub to this day (so much so that it was still the second most popular office suite up to a couple of years ago). WordPerfect has been acquired twice - first by Novell in 1994, and then by Corel in 1996 who continue development of the product and the WPD file format to this day.||The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format used to present documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems. Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, graphics, and other information needed to display it.|
|Technical details||WPD documents tend to to primarily contain formatted text. WPD files produced in Corel WordPerfect, the company that have developed the format since 1996, are also capable of storing embedded objects such as tables, graphs and images produced in other applications. WPD files contain streams of text, and store formatting information using tags which can be shown as reveal codes in Corel WordPerfect. These highlight how each section of text or object is formatted at a glance, and are therefore useful when trying to determine layout or formatting issues. Like similar file formats such as DOC, WPD files can also contain mail merge fields, which allow information from an external data source, such as a spreadsheet or database, to be inputted into a template.||The PDF combines three technologies: A subset of the PostScript page description programming language, for generating the layout and graphics. A font-embedding/replacement system to allow fonts to travel with the documents. A structured storage system to bundle these elements and any associated content into a single file, with data compression where appropriate.|
