Broken links created by Office Applications

Broken links created when converting Office documents to HTML files

See or for an explanation of any links to editdata.mso, filelist.xml or oledata.msoThese Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) articles were written for FrontPage 2000 and FrontPage XP (FrontPage 2002) respectively, but apply to all versions of FrontPage and Expression Web, and all versions of MS Office since (and including) MS Office 2000.

In addition to the links listed in the KB articles, Word 2007 also produces links to themes and other schema - examples are shown below with the other links.

These links are generally in the <head> section of the page and take the form:

  • <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/filelist.xml">
  • <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/editdata.mso">
  • <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/oledata.mso">
  • <link rel=Edit-Time-Data href="filename_files/editdata.mso">
  • <link rel=themeData href="filename_files/theme.thm">
  • <link rel=colorSchemeMapping href="filename_files/cscheme.xml">

where filename is the name of the page the link is on.

Not all of the links will be present on any page.
