Definition: document


(1) A printed or handwritten paper used to transact business or make an official statement.

(2) A digital file that is typically created by a word processor or text editor. When Apple introduced the Macintosh in 1984, it called every data file a document no matter which software application was used to create it. The terminology migrated to the Windows environment, which provided a My Documents folder and later just one-word Documents folder as the default storage location for text. See file, template and style sheet.
