About WordprocessingML

OpenXMLDeveloper Wiki

The representation of word-processing documents through WordprocessingML brings the extensive functionality of Microsoft Word 2007 and 2010 to document formats.  WordprocessingML is the most frequently used of the three formats. Word processing documents can have the following features:

  • Rich paragraph formatting, including fonts, font attributes, super and sub-script, colors, text effects such as glow and shadow, left, right and center justification, top, middle, and bottom vertical alignment, along with a number of other formatting features.
  • Tables, including a wide variety of formatting options.
  • Paragraph and character styles. Styles can use other styles as base styles.
  • Table styles that include the styling of header rows, footer rows, horizontal and vertical rule styling and colors for a wide variety of classes of cells (top left, top right, top row, bottom row, etc.).  Table styles also use inheritance.
  • Comprehensive numbering and bulleting language options, allowing for most language scenarios in European, eastern, and Middle Eastern languages.
  • Image styling, including a variety of transforms, skews, and reflections.
  • Extensive, rich drawings.
  • SmartArt, which enables users to build sophisticated graphics with minimal effort.
  • Charts and graphs, which can be driven from data directly in the document or from data in an embedded spreadsheet.
  • Headers, footers, foot notes, and end notes, which provide the reference mechanisms for a wide variety of technical and academic papers.
  • MathML, for representing math formulas.
  • Fields, which provide dynamic content capabilities, including page references, calculated values, hyperlinks, dates, times, TOCs, and much more.
  • Content controls, which provide the ability to delineate content and provide semantic meaning to the delineations.
  • Custom XML parts, enabling developers to embed business data directly in documents.
  • Bookmarks, which provide a mechanism to provide addresses to content, which can then be referenced by hyperlinks.
  • Page layout features, enabling printing capabilities to fit just about every need.
  • Form features and mail-merge capabilities.
  • Revision tracking, so that editors and reviewers can identify specific changes made to a document.
  • Comments and other annotations.
  • Alternative format importing capabilities, enabling developers to import HTML, other WordprocessingML documents, text, and more.
