    These are great tips for researching Open XML. I was pleased to learn we do the same things 🙂

    Another resource I rely on is the Interoperability and Implementarion Notes as just the ECMA/ISO docs alone don’t always supply what values default to or how things are implemented in the Office client programs.

    hi Eric,

    I have a requirement to embed PDFs into a docx file . The PDF will contain around 10 pages(includes images and Text).
    How should I approach this problem, should I convert the PDF to image , does Open XML support this feature or do I need to go for 3rd party products.

    Appreciate your response in this regard. This is a critical requirement for my project.

    Thanks & Regards,
