Infrastructures for Information Inc. (i4i Inc.), a world leader in the design and development of collaborative content solutions and technologies announced today that they are releasing a new product, x4w V 1.0. Based on an i4i registered patent, x4w will allow users of custom XML in Word to open and save documents, preserving the integrity of custom XML and applications that rely on XML functionality.
As of January 11, 2010 Microsoft was enjoined from licensing the ability to open Word documents that contain custom XML¹. Microsoft delivered a patch that removed custom XML from all Word 2007 documents, on the "Open" command².
x4w V 1.0 will enable users, affected by the Microsoft patch, to open, edit and save Word documents that contain custom XML, ensuring the ability to utilize their investment in custom XML.
