File extension.pages
CategoryDocument File
DescriptionFiles with a .pages file extension are word processing documents created by Apple's "Pages" application which forms part of Apple's iWork office suite, a set of applications which run on the Max OS X and iOS operating systems, and also includes Numbers (for spreadsheets) and Keynote (for presentations). Pages is a hybrid application, first released by Apple in February 2005, that allows users to perform both word processing and page layout tasks. A direct competitor to Microsoft Word (part of Microsoft's "Office" suite) it originally aimed to take a more simplistic approach to document creation and editing than Word, stripping out many of Word's more complex features.

Pages includes over 140 Apple-supplied templates to allow users to create common documents such as posters, newsletters, certificates, reports, brochures and formal letters - iWork '09 added support for a further 40 new templates. Pages can used to create custom documents which include charts, tables, images, text boxes, shapes, equations and graphs. It incoporates most of the key features found in modern word processors, including the selection of fonts based on WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get"), the use of headers, footers, page-breaks, footnotes, bulleted lists and support for automatically generating a table of contents. Pages also comes with the standard spelling and grammar checkers, and provides support for ditching the keyboard to use the dictation capabilities of OS X Mountain Lion. Pages provides tools for collaboration through change-tracking and advanced commenting and feedback features.

Pages integrates well with other Apple applications - Since iWork '08 a media browser has been incorporated which allows users to drag and drop photos, movies and music from iTunes, iPhoto, Aperture and iMovie, and it is possible to link charts produced in Numbers to .pages documents so that they update when that data is changed. Since the release of version 4.2 of Pages (in July 2012), it also supports the auto-syncing of documents through iCloud

The key advances in Pages are summarised below:

Technical DetailsOfficial file format specifications for iWork '09 pages files are not published by Apple but there have been attempts by some developers to reverse engineer them. At the top level iWork '09 pages files represent a zip file containing:
  1. An index.xml file
  2. A buildVersionHistory file
  3. A "QuickLook" directory with a "Thumbnail.jpg" of the document. The directory may also contain a PDF file named "Preview.pdf" if the user chose to save the original document with additional preview information in Pages.
The index.xml is the core component of the file, containing the document content and all of the metadata for formatting it. This XML is not standards-based as Pages does not support the OpenDocument file format used by Microsoft.

Files created by Pages in iWork '09 are not backwards compatibile with earlier versions of iWork. Pages files cannot be opened by programs other than iWork.

File extension.doc
CategoryDocument File
DescriptionDoc (an abbreviation of document) is a file extension for word processing documents; it is associated mainly with Microsoft and their Microsoft Word application. Historically, it was used for documentation in plain-text format, particularly of programs or computer hardware, on a wide range of operating systems. Almost everyone would have used the doc file format, whenever you write a letter, do some work or generally write on your PC you will use the doc file format. It was in the 1990s that Microsoft chose the doc extension for their proprietary Microsoft Word processing formats. As PC technology has grown the original uses for the extension have become less important and have largely disappeared from the PC world.

Technical DetailsEarly versions of the doc file format contained mostly formatted text, however development of the format has allowed doc files to contain a wide variety of embedded objects such as charts and tables from other applications as well as media such as videos, images, sounds and diagrams. doc files can also contain mail merge information, which allows a word-processed template to be used in conjunction with a spreadsheet or database.
