EDGAR Rel 8.10 Reduced Content XFDL Filing Specification

In support of EDGAR Release 8.10 (available to the public as of February 7, 2005), updates were made to the EDGAR Reduced Content XFDL Filing Specification. The revised specification is currently available via the links that appear at the end of this document.

The EDGAR Release 8.10 Reduced Content XFDL Filing Specification provides guidance to interested filers for creating XFDL filings without the use of EDGARLink. The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will construct software that will generate an XFDL filing that can be successfully parsed by the EDGAR Receipt Server.

This Release introduces minor updates to submission Templates 1, 2, 3, and 5 and EDGARLink software. These changes, based on recent SEC requests and rulemaking activities, are supported by EDGAR 8.10 server software. All field identifiers that were valid in the 8.9 version of the PureEdge templates continue to be valid in 8.10.
