Compound document frameworks like OLE and opendoc – are the latest and greatest technologies. Every visual object on screen is a live component. Some components are also containers, which means they can embed other components. A component is an independent piece of software that can be separately purchased on the market. With compound documents, components can take any shape and can be moved them around and embed them at will. Components can be resized, zoom in their contents. So compound documents are a better simulation of reality. 3D compound documents will provide even more realistic simulations.
