The .docx file format

A file with the DOCX file extension is a Microsoft Word OpenXML Format Document file. These files are XML-based and can contain text, objects, styles, formatting, and images, all of which are stored as separate files and ultimately compacted in a single, ZIP-compressed docx file.
