I'd be interested if anyone has a use for this as I doubt most people are even aware the format exists, never mind having come across a file only available in it. From a cursory glance I don't even see a way to create them from within Office 2011.

Some people and companies that mainly or exclusively use Windows, are increasingly sending out files to their employees and the general public whose format was developed by Microsoft--.docx, .xps, etc. If the person trying to read these files uses a Mac that's running an older version of Microsoft Office for Mac, they can't read these files, requiring them to either buy a newer version of Office for Mac, or to download a Mac-specific utility that allows them to work with these new file formats. I don't know which version of Office for Mac can read .xps files, but if all one needs to do is to read .xps files, then a little utility like this one might be handy.

I looked into this further, and found NO version of Office for Mac can read .xps files, even with a plugin (there are none to do this on the Mac)--you need a third-party utility to work with .xps files on the Mac, and all the ones I found (like the one on this page) aren't free, or you can use a Google Gmail or Google Drive account to read .xps files and convert them to standard PDF format, or you can use a free conversion service like www.convertfiles.com or www.XPS2PDF.org.
