XML file structure

Documents in OpenDocument file format are stored as compressed zip archives that contain XML files. To view these XML files, you can open the OpenDocument file with an unzip program. The following files and directories are contained within the OpenDocument files:

  1. The text content of the document is located in content.xml.

    By default, content.xml is stored without formatting elements like indentation or line breaks to minimize the time for saving and opening the document. The use of indentations and line breaks can be activated in the Expert configuration by setting the property /org.openoffice.Office.Common/Save/Document PrettyPrinting to true.

  2. The file meta.xml contains the meta information of the document, which you can enter under File - Properties.

    If you save a document with a password, meta.xml will not be encrypted.

  3. The file settings.xml contains further information about the settings for this document.

  4. In styles.xml, you find the styles applied to the document that can be seen in the Styles window.

  5. The meta-inf/manifest.xml file describes the structure of the XML file.

Additional files and folders can be contained in the packed file format.

Definition of the XML formats

The schema for the OpenDocument formats can be found on the www.oasis-open.org web site.
