OpenXML Document Viewer

The main goal of the open source  OpenXML Document Viewer project is to create software tools, plus guidance, showing how documents created using Open XML Format can be translated to HTML.


The OpenXML Document Viewer project provides plug-ins and tools to view MS Word 2007 documents on platforms where Word 2007 is not available. This is achieved by using the OpenXMLViewer browser plug-in or the command line interface to convert the Word document (.docx) into HTML.

Following are the high-level features which are implemented in the first release:

  • Core transformation framework
  • Browser plug-ins for Firefox 3.0.x on Windows and Linux
  • Word Document features including translation of:
    • Font types
    • Images
    • Text styles
    • Diagrams
    • Tables
    • Hyperlinks
