Default File signature of word/excel/powerpoint


Does anyone know how to deal with the file signature of word/excel/powerpoint?

They all have a common signature of D0 CF 11 E0 A1 B1 1A E1 but I want to find out who's who among them.

typing "XLS" in the little search box on wotsit, i managed to locate a very tasty PDF that covered "Microsoft Excel File Format (versions 2, 3, 4, 5, 95, 97, 2000, XP)" (was actually the 5th link in the list that the search results presented). The information is there. You just need to search for it.
