The x4o Theory of Operation
Any technology that successfully addresses a complex requirement must be based on a sound and clear theory of operation.
XML is used for the exchange of information, at any level of complexity, between systems. Schema files provide rules about the naming and organization of the XML content.
The unlimited range of current and future systems require a solution that is as flexible as possible, and compliant with any correctly formed schema. OOXML (Office Open XML) is the world’s most widely-used, comprehensive set of technical elements.
Technical elements are used for the identification of content for presentation purposes: e.g., paragraphs, emphasis, tables, lists, citations, footnotes, etc. They are generic; all documents use them in full or part. Microsoft Word is an authoring application that provides support for these elements.
