Wictor Wilén: Dissecting XPS

May 22, 2007

Wictor has a good series called "Dissecting XPS"

Haven’t explored it all yet, but in the 2 articles I read, I already found value:

  • In Part 7 Wictor says "…I really hope that more applications will get a Save as XPS function…"
  • Part 8 mentions a tool that sounds interesting. Open Xml Package Explorer: Not really an XPS tool but Package Explorer is a nice Office Open Xml application created by Wouter van Vugt. It is created for Office Open Xml documents but since XPS files are built on OPC, which Package Explorer supports, Package Explorer might be extended to support XPS files in the future. Package Explorer is available at CodePlex. Maybe if I get time and Wouter allows it I’ll have a look at it 🙂

Developers looking to build new file formats should be focusing on OPC (Open Packaging Conventions)!
