Description DOCX – is a standard extension that includes the test content of the document, pictures, painted objects, styles and other elements. It replaced the obsolete format .doc in 2007 and is used to work with Microsoft Word documents. The format allows you to work with different content based on many tools that automate the creation and editing processes. For the correct display of the DOCX files in obsolete versions of Word, you need to install a special compatibility package. It helps to convert text content to DOC format.
Technical details The DOCX extension is written in XML markup language and includes many document elements stored as separate files that are combined into one archived ZIP file. The appearance of such a format confirms the transition of Microsoft Office suite software solutions to the Open XML international standard. Therefore, the extension is supported by many open source applications, for example, LibreOffice Writer and OpenOffice Writer.

File category documents
Description Organization of texts in rows applies to the TXT file format. Such text files oppose binaries which have data that is interpreted as a text. For example images or sounds that are converted to coded forms. Raw text files can possess texts presented in formatted or in forms that are not formatted. The text files are very simply and are used for storing data in most cases.
Technical details Raw text files are not highly formatted and this means they meet accepted formats by the system terminal and the basic text editor. These files are accepted and used universally since they can be read by any text-based program. This is because it uses a standard form of encoding which makes it easy for different language users to utilize the files. The ASCII- specific text files can be used in place of each other and can be read using Unix, Mac and Windows. UTF-8 differs from ASCII and this is attributed to Byte order mark differences but it still remains the most character set. Its compatibility with ASCII is backwards.
