See Widgets 1.0: Packaging and Configuration


This document defines a Zip-based packaging format and an XML-based  
configuration document format for widgets. The configuration document  
is a simple XML-based language that authors can use to record metadata  
and configuration parameters about a widget. The packaging format is a  
container for files required by a widget.
