.xps file extension
- XML Paper Specification document.
Each .xps file consists of a set of XML and other files which are compressed. The individual files contained within the .xps file can be viewed by renaming the .xps file to .zip and then treating it as a .zip file.
Many Microsoft tools can generate .xps files, for example Microsoft Project 2007 and others.
