RE: Keyword expansion with .docx files

Yes, I was afraid that this would be an answer ;-) Meanwhile I'll not switch to .docx and continue with .doc files.

But I think it is technically possible to implement it.

We need a "contrib" component at the client side which expands keywords for .docx files (extract ZIP (=docx) and expand keyword in .xml).
But to ensure if this is possible we need a closer view how .docx really works.
