Basic Knowledge about Office OpenXML

When talking about Office OpenXML, we may think of HTML. Actually, Office OpenXML is similar to HTML both are tag-based languages. The difference between Office OpenXML and HTML is that the tags which Office OpenXML uses are not predefined. If we want to create own tags within Office OpenXML, we need to follow a few rules.

Firstly, only one root element is contained in Office OpenXML document. The root element is often taken as document element and appears after the prolog section. Besides, all the Office OpenXML elements should contain end tags. Both start and end tag should be identical. Also, the elements can’t overlap. What’s more, all attribute values must use quotation marks and we can’t use some special characters within the text. After following the rules, the Office OpenXML document will be well formatted.
