    Stop being a smart-a** in so many threads. Post respectful criticism or otherwise useful content, but do not directly insult or patronize somebody.

    The original post is, indeed, an XML word document. You can see that the w: and o: namespace prefixes are pointed to the URIs for the word and office schemas. It looks like office documents are simply extended HTML. Pretty cool stuff.

    As for the images, the whole "Notepad" argument is a little off base. It's highly likely that Word/Office attaches images as multipart / embedded MIME content, in which case the binary sequences COULD be constructed externally and pasted in (but why !?). As pointed out by mixu, Notepad doesn't handle binary content, but assuming that we were using a text editor that COULD handle binary content, then it would be possible (albeit absurd).

    P.S. - Mark-Hamilton - not to pick on you, but it's obvious that you lack the knowledge to hold your own in this discussion. Feel free to refrain from replying if you find yourself in a similar scenario in the future, and save us all the frustration of dealing with your arrogance and ignorance.

    Don't forget that there are certain ASCII chars that notepad can't represent, and Word may not be able to either.

    Both Word and Notepad are capable of Unicode display. It's just a matter of setting the character set.

    Well, a modern version (Windows 2000 or later) should be able to. Windows 95-based OSes like Windows 98 have a crappy version of Notepad that doesn't even have Search and Replace.

    Yeah... you could also pretty much use any HTML editor. Word (at least later versions) imports HTML directly.
