Benefit #1: XPS is ideal for sharing and publishing
What makes up a good electronic document format?
We at NiXPS feel that a good electronic document format should be easy and cheap to create, reliable and hassle free and easy and cheap to view.
XPS gives you that; as XPS is built into Windows, it can be generated as easy as it is to print a document. XPS viewers are also built into Windows Vista and are freely available for other platforms, so people can view them. And XPS is a graphically rich format that represents exactly the document as you made it in your authoring application like Word.
As a result you can safely send around XPS documents for document review, but also use XPS as a format to publish documents on the web. The documents will keep the exact layout and formatting you have made them in, and your recipient will enjoy a hassle free experience in using your documents.(This article is part of the 'Top 9 Benefits of using XPS for your business'-series)
