Custom XML in Word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With the recent court ruling, I saw that Microsoft has released a patch for OEM, that removes support for custom XML. What is the impact on developers?

    Currently we have Word plugin that uses custom XML for meta data, the updated document along with custom metadata uploaded to server and shared with other users. We do not map content controls to custom XML or custom XML is not added to word contents. Do we have to remove the usage of custom XML? or is it just that custom XML will be saved but cannot be used to map  content controls. If we have to redesign then thats lot of work.

    Any information regarding this will really help us to ensure our product does not fail after Jan 11, 2010!
