SXW File Format

OpenOffice.org 1.0 Text Document

SXW is a file extension for a OpenOffice.org text document file format. A text file consists of a human-readable sequence of characters and the words they form that can be encoded into computer-readable formats such as ASCII.

The SXW file format was originally created for StarOffice Writer, the word processing application for Sun Microsystem's StarOffice suite.

Programs that can open SXW files include StarOffice Writer and OpenOffice.org Writer. To open an SXW file in Microsoft Word, it's usually possible by renaming it as a DOC file.

MIME type: application/vnd.sun.xml.writer
