The Word document format – when it all began?

The rapidly growing rivalry and advanced IT technologies have made software developers pay special attention to effectiveness and productivity of all work processes. Consequently, there have been introduced various programs that can optimise enterprises' work. One of the most extensively used file formats is Word Document. It is a word processing program which is designed for creation of professional documents, for example resumes, letters, fax cover sheets, reports, legal documents, brochures, technical manuals and so on. It is an effective instrument for students, business people and even individuals. The Word document format was designed by Microsoft Ltd. It was originally called Multi-Tool Word. The first addition was presented in the eighties. Since then, there have appeared several other versions, including the latest version that appeared in 2008. The next addition of Word is said to be released in the coming year. It will comprise a lot of new features typical of other programmes in the Office 2010. The 2010 version will contain new WordArt styles and effects superseding the old ones. Although Word is a constituent of the Microsoft Office system, it sells as a standalone application and included in Microsoft Works Suite. Beginning with the 2003 addition, the branding was altered to emphasise Word's identity as a constituent within the Office Suite. The company renamed Microsoft Word into Microsoft Office Word. The Word format allows users to type, format and modify text to be printed out or viewed electronically. The Word File format is a reasonably priced word processing program. The application offers unlimited features and tools, and a great many users are familiar and comfortable with its Microsoft toolbars. Word provides tools to format fonts, add page numbers and clipart, and create headers and tables. There is even an "office assistant" cartoon that can guide a user done the creation of a document or respond to any FAQs that may arise. Word's formats are denoted either by a. doc or. docx file extension. The newer ".docx" extension stands for the Office Open XML international standard for Office documents and is deployed by Word 2007 for Windows, Word 2008 for the Macintosh.
