The XPS and PDF File Formats in Comparison:

Both, XPS and PDF are designed to make documents portable across different platforms and devices, so the two file formats can be see ns as competitors. While XPS has been developed and is maintained by Microsoft, PDF is a proprietary file format by Adobe. In the following you find the most important properties of both in a brief summary:

The XPS Format

An XPS file is a Microsoft-created open standard for fixed file types and a page description language. This is a vector-based file format that is based on XML. Device and resolution independence are supported for XPS files.

To maintain document fidelity, XPS files are used. OXPS and PDF files are commonly read by operating systems that can read XPS files. The Windows Color System color calibration technology, which must be downloaded separately, is also supported by XPS.

XPS is a subset of XAML that comprises XML markup that defines a document's general image and layout, rendering it for distribution, storing, processing, and more. Color gradients, transparencies, calibration, and CMYK are all supported by XPS files.

The PDF Format

A PDF is a document file format that contains text, images, data, etc. This file type operating system is independent. It's an open standard that compresses documents and vector graphics. It can be viewed in any web browser, but some browsers may need a PDF plug-in installed to view this document.

PDF files are just electronic documents that were created and designed by Adobe Systems that use some language postscripts. It's the official program that is widely used for viewing documents. Most commonly, PDF files are combinations of text and vector graphics, and also text forms, scripts that were written using Javascript, and other types of items.

Therefore, PDF is a universal file format, which makes it one of the most commonly used file types today. The reason that PDF files are so widely used by many and are popular is that they can preserve the original document formatting. All PDF files always look identical, no matter what device or operating system you use.
