Committee Work

Technical committee project leaders, authors, editors, members and support staff developing standards can see their XML content in “near-final” PDF format.  Optionally, add line numbers to facilitate meeting discussions.

And special editorial layouts enable them to check their XML is consistent and to discuss semantic markup to ensure it is correct.
