All the big players in the office software productivity market are currently doing everything they can to lock people into their proprietary document formats like DOCX and XLSX. Microsoft and Google are actively discouraging people to use open and free document formats like RTF and even plain text.
Have you ever tried loading a Rich Text document, modifying it and then saving it again in Google Docs or MS Office 365 as an RTF document? Surprise!... Surprise!... Google Docs and MS Office 365 will not allow you to save your documents and precious letters and other content to the open and completely interchangeable RTF document format!
To prevent your documents becoming held ransom by these oppressive and Dick-tating companies, I suggest you start using a much freer and open document format. Current web browser technology and continual updating of the HTML5 code has recently allowed software developers to use this format to create free and open applications that could use the HTML5 format to their advantage.
*.HTM or *.HTML is used as a file extension for HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) web page file format...
The HTML file extension is sometimes abbreviated as .htm for compatibility with older operating systems, such as Disk Operating System (DOS), Windows 3.x and OS/2., which support eight character file names with a three character extension. When you save an HTML document, you can use either the .html or the .htm file extension.
HTM and HTML are the most common type of documents used to build web pages and documents. Both HTM and HTML may contain links to images, audio, video and scripts. Just like any other standard desktop created document e.g. MS Word, SSuite WordGraph, Google Docs etc.
Any browser or web editing program can open HTM files. HTML consists of the set of mark-up symbols or codes inserted in a file intended for display on a World Wide Web browser page. The mark-up tells the browser how to display a Web page's words and images for the user.
