Currently, the APIs do not talk deeply to pieces of documents. There are storage APIs that let you upload and download documents. To access pieces, you have to use the techniques shown in the rest of this chapter to parse and write documents (for instance: http://writer.zoho.com/ ?public/help/userView.AddWorkbook/noband). I suspect that API calls to access parts of documents will follow at some point in the future.
