Information about the .txt (txt) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .txt (txt) file type.

Plain text file.

A plain text file holds just plain ASCII or UNICODE text with no document formatting information.

An plain text file can be opened, viewed and edited using any standard text editor (such as notepad on Windows). The contents of a text file can be viewed using a word processor, but should not be saved using a word-processor because a word processor will tend to add additional formatting and layout information so any saved file is unlikely to still be a text file.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .txt files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .txt. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
