The "magic numbers" section is missing.

Using a syntax close to the file(1) command, OpenDocument files have the following 'magic' :

0    string   PK\003\004
>30  string   mimetype
>>38 string    vnd.oasis.opendocument.text
(or any other mimetype being registered here)

I.e. in plain english: the ZIP magic header "PK" followed by the byte values 3 and 4,
and at offset 30, the string "mimetype" followed by the actual mimetype of the document.
