XLS vs TXT:
|Full name||Microsoft Excel Binary File Format||Raw Text File|
|Type of format||Spreadsheet||Plain text|
|Introduction||Microsoft Excel up until 2007 version used a proprietary binary file format called Excel Binary File Format (.XLS) as its primary format. Excel 2007 uses Office Open XML as its primary file format, an XML-based format that followed after a previous XML-based format called "XML Spreadsheet".||On most operating systems the name text file refers to file format that allows only plain text content with very little formatting (e.g., no bold or italic types). Such files can be viewed and edited on text terminals or in simple text editors.|
|Technical details||OpenOffice.org has created documentation of the Excel format. Since then Microsoft made the Excel binary format specification available to freely download.||"Text file" refers to a type of container, while plain text refers to a type of content. Text files can contain plain text, but they are not limited to such. At a generic level of description, there are two kinds of computer files: text files and binary files.|
