Interesting site, but I was hoping for technical details, the real bits and bytes stuff.

try the Microsoft Developer Network (http://www.microsoft.com/msdn) Library CD-ROM.
This CD is filled with technical information, sample programs, known bugs and great reference books like Programming Windows 3.1 by Charles Petzold. Unfortunately, none of this information is available online from Microsoft.

Another great resource that is online is the Encyclopedia of Graphics File Formats home page (http://www.ora.com/centers/gff/index.htm) hosted by O'Reilly & Associates (http://www.ora.com)

They offer information about the WMF (and EMF) file formats at http://www.ora.com/centers/gff/formats/micmeta/index.htm.
You can also purchase the Encyclopedia of Graphics File Formats book with CD-ROM at http://www.ora.com/catalog/gffcd/noframes.html.
