Subject Re: Binary file format docs now available
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2008 13:28:09 GMT
I've had access to these for some time. In regards to the Word format
documentation, there isn't a lot that has been added. Basically,
they've added new SPRMs and some of the old data structures have some
changes.

There seem to be a lot of new features that are hinted at in the FIB
but not documented. Also, Embedded objects and images haven't been
documented any better.

Looking at the Excel and Powerpoint docs, it's pretty much a listing
of records with tiny bits of info on how everything fits together.
