I would like to know what the technical definition of "content" is as it pertains to MS Office documents. We all know that the word "content," in the vernacular means -- something that is contained within something else - such as the contents of a bag or box. That's not what I'm seeking in my question. What I'm seeking is below:
When one creates an MS Word document, a date known as "content created" is established for that document. However. if one creates an MS Word document that has nothing in it, hence no content, we still get a "content created" date, but obviously, there is no content to speak of. -- So, what exactly does MS Office (MS Word in this case) consider to be content? - How does Microsoft define "content"?
I've looked high and low on the Internet for an official definition for "content" - as it pertains to MS Office documents, but have not found one. If you read any Microsoft technical documentation, they constantly refer to a document's content, but never define it specifically. In my example of the empty document, there was nothing saved into the document, but we still got a "content created" date. Therefore, there has to be something within each documents, perhaps in its metadata, that Microsoft is referring to as "content" and hence issuing a content created date. - My question is, what is that? How does Microsoft define "content"?
