<dxfs> (Formats)

This element contains the master differential formatting records (<dxf's>) which define formatting for all non-cell formatting in this workbook. Whereas <xf> records fully specify a particular aspect of formatting (e.g., cell borders) by referencing those formatting definitions elsewhere in the Styles part, <dxf> records specify incremental (or differential) aspects of formatting directly inline within the <dxf> element. The <dxf> formatting is to be applied on top of or in addition to any formatting already present on the object using the <dxf> record.
