I know 1033 is the english language set. In comparison Japanese is 1041.

Anything inside 1033 applies to the 1033 language pack and can be different from other files in other language packs. DOCTEMP contains all the document templates in a site for Word(../WORD), Excel(../XL), InfoPath(../XMLFORMS), PowerPoint(../PPT), Web Part Pages(../SMARTPGS), etc.
