Microsoft Office is a suite of productivity programs created or purchased by Microsoft and developed for Microsoft Windows, and Apple Computer's Mac OS and Mac OS X operating systems. There are two general file types for Microsoft Office documents: the legacy binary file format and the new Microsoft XML Format.

Developer Challenges

Develop software that embeds and can edit licenses and metadata into the new Microsoft XML Format. Supposedly, this new format uses standard Dublin Core metadata, and thus, it shouldn't be too difficult to add support.


  • Microsoft has implemented a standard plug-in for Microsoft Office XP and 2003 which enables CC-licensing content generated from Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Also, see this wiki page.
