Repository organization

The content in the office-content repository is grouped first by article language, then by topic. The README.md file at the root of each topic directory specifies the structure of the articles within the topic.

Article within each topic are named by MSDN GUID rather than title name. This is a side effect of our document management process and cannot be changed at this time.
