DOC/DOCX: These are file formats created and used by Microsoft Word. DOC stands for "Document" and is an older file format used by Microsoft Word versions prior to Word 2007. DOC files can contain formatted text, images, tables, and other elements. DOCX stands for "Document (XML)" and is a newer file format introduced with Microsoft Word 2007. DOCX files use an open XML format, which makes them more compact and easier to share across different platforms. They also support additional features such as improved security and accessibility options. Both file formats are commonly used for creating, editing, and sharing text-based documents, but DOCX has become the preferred format due to its enhanced features and compatibility with modern software applications.
RTF: This file format (Rich Text Format) is a proprietary document file format with published specification developed by Microsoft Corporation from 1987 until 2008 for cross-platform document interchange with Microsoft products. It was updated up to the point where Microsoft Office 2007 was released, after which development stopped. It is still used primarily with older versions of Office documents.
DOTX: This file format is used by Microsoft Word to store document templates. DOTX files are based on the Open XML format, which makes them easier to work with and more compatible with other software. DOTX files are used as a starting point for creating new documents with a specific format and layout.
ODT/FODT: These are file formats used by OpenOffice and LibreOffice to store text documents. ODT is the standard format used by these applications, while FODT is a newer format that supports additional features. ODT and FODT files are based on the OpenDocument Format (ODF), which is an open standard for document exchange. ODT and FODT files can contain text, images, tables, charts, and other elements commonly found in text documents.
