Decrypt MHTML File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting MHTML to ODT, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the MHTML using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.
Document document = new Document("Decrypt.mhtml", "password"); // decrypt MHTML document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly ODT- File via .NET
In order to protect your ODT from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET API. It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.
Document document = new Document("input.doc"); // apply document protection and set protection password doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Odt document.Save("output.odt", SaveFormat.Odt);

What is MHTML File Format?
MHTML files are often created by web browsers when users save web pages for offline viewing or archiving purposes. By bundling all the necessary resources into one file, MHTML ensures that the web page can be viewed and rendered accurately, even without an internet connection or access to the original server.
The MHTML format follows the MIME standard, which is used for encoding and exchanging various types of data over the internet. It uses multipart MIME encoding to package the HTML code and associated resources into a single file. The file typically has a .mht or .mhtml file extension.
MHTML files can be opened and viewed by web browsers that support the format, such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. Some text editors and specialized software also provide the ability to open and edit MHTML files.
The MHTML format offers advantages in terms of portability and convenience, as it allows users to save and share web pages as a single file, ensuring the preservation of the page’s layout, formatting, and linked resources. However, it’s worth noting that MHTML is not as widely used as other web formats like HTML or PDF, and compatibility may vary across different software and platforms.
What is ODT File Format?
ODT is a file format used for storing documents in the Open Document Format (ODF). ODT stands for Open Document Text. It is the default file format for word processing documents created by applications such as LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and Apache OpenOffice.
ODT files are based on XML, which is a markup language used for organizing and structuring data. They are designed to be an open and interoperable format, allowing users to create, edit, and share documents across different software applications and platforms.
The ODT format supports a wide range of features and formatting options commonly found in word processing documents. It includes support for text styling, paragraphs, tables, images, hyperlinks, headers and footers, footnotes, and more. ODT files can also contain embedded objects and multimedia elements.
One of the key advantages of the ODT format is its compatibility with different software applications. Users can create an ODT document in one word processing application and open it in another without losing formatting or content. This promotes collaboration and ensures that documents can be accessed and edited by users who may be using different software.
ODT files can be easily converted to other popular document formats, such as Microsoft Word’s DOCX format or PDF, for wider compatibility and sharing purposes. Additionally, the ODT format is designed to be future-proof, allowing for long-term preservation and accessibility of documents.
