OpenXPS or XPS stands for XML Paper Specification. It is based on XML and it's
a new electronic paper format originally developed by Microsoft and it serves
as a PDF alternative. XPS files are usually created using "Microsoft XPS
Document Writer" in Windows environments. It is now standardized as an open
standard document format.
Quoting Wikipedia:
An XPS file is in fact a Unicoded ZIP archive using the Open Packaging
Conventions, containing the files which make up the document. These include an
XML markup file for each page, text, embedded fonts, raster images, 2D vector
graphics, as well as the digital rights management information. The contents
of an XPS file can be examined simply by opening it in an application which
supports ZIP files.
The OpenXPS document format specification supports features such as color
gradients, transparencies, CMYK color spaces, printer calibration,
multiple-ink systems and print schemas.
This package contains the library. It is being used by evince to read XPS
