That is not correct:
 .DOC format was opened before/during the OOXML debacle as no further 
development was to take place on it. Most was known through reverse 
engineering anyway.
 .DOCX format as part of OOXML had a extremely large spec released for 
it (see Ecma 376). However there are three versions of OOXML. The 1st 
Edition that Microsoft and Ecma (initially as Microsoft sock puppets) 
offered to ISO/IEC for standardisation and is deprecated. The 2nd 
Edition which AFAIK has not been implemented by any Office software 
is the standard ISO/IEC 29500. The 3rd Edition is also not 
implemented.

Both Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 use the 1st Edition. Information 
on this format is well available, however embedded objects especially 
of the Microsoft variety may well be in closed formats.

Rob Weir may correct any inaccuracies here as this description 
encapsulates many man years of hard work for many people into the 
briefest possible space i could conscientiously achieve.
