Turns out it is really a TIFF-like format, with a unique codec and some special tags. The tags are described in one specification, known as the Feature specification. The codec is described in a different spec, known as the bitstream specification. They are both embedded in a Device Porting Kit (DPK), which you can find at: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/xps/hdphotodpk.mspx [I used cabextract to get out the content, and then rebuilt the directory structure based on the DPK specification, which is also in the kit]

How are you planning to address the concerns of the open source community about the legal issues surrounding HDPhoto?
