What's an XPS document?

>From Wikipedia I've learned that this is somehow related to the Open
XML Paper Specification aka OpenXPS aka ECMA-388, a page description
language intended to occupy some of the same niches as PDF.  I guess
some versions of MS Office save files in this format, and that I would
want to install this library and set of utilities to allow people on
machines I administer to view them.

Ideally I wouldn't have had to guess.  Could you clarify the package
description, so the long description includes all the information
needed to decide whether to install the package?  Devref tells me[1]
that the kind people at debian-l10n-english@lists.debian.org might be
able to help with wording.

Hope that helps,
