Introduction    DOC is a filename extension used for word processing documents. It is most often found in the Microsoft Word Binary File Format. Microsoft Word 2007 and newer versions of Microsoft Word have replaced the binary file format with the Office Open XML format. However, Microsoft Word can still create DOC files. OpenDocument (also known as OpenDocument) is an XML-based file format for word processing documents, spreadsheets, charts, and presentations. It was created to provide an open, XML-based file specification for office applications.

Technical details  

Binary DOC files are more compatible than other formats, such as Rich Text Format or Hypertext Markup Language. However, they often have more text formatting information.      OpenDocument's original format consists of an XML file that has its root element. OpenDocument files may also be formatted as a ZIP compressed archive. This can include a number of files and directories. These can contain binary content and can benefit from ZIP's lossless compression which reduces file size.
