What is a SXW file?
A .SXW file is a StarOffice/OpenOffice Writer Document file.
Files that contain the .sxw file extension are most commonly associated with the StarOffice and OpenOffice Writer word processing software applications. The SXW files contain word processing documents that have been created within the StarOffice/OpenOffice Writer application.
The Writer application is included with the StarOffice Suite and OpenOffice, and it is based on the OpenDocument XML file format. This file format was created by Sun Microsystems as an open community effort.
SXW files can contain rich text, simple graphics, bitmaps, and formatting information such as font sizes and styles. SXW files are similar to Microsoft Word's .docx files.
