I also received the message from Mike Paciello regarding the possible adoption of PDF as a document interchange standard.
I called Doug Wakefield at COCA. There is much opisition to this standard as
if it were adopted the documents so encoded would only be printable.
Confussion has been caused by the PDF and PDI formats. There is an effort to
to find a way agencies can interchange documents. The documents mustt be
alterable which rules out the PDF proposal.
The adoption of PDF as a standard is a nasty rumor.
We will have to keep watch on this activity however as it will surely affect us.
