New York (Oct. 28, 2002) -- The groups developing XBRL, a programming code for transmitting financial report information over the Internet, have released an exposure draft for an enhanced version of their original XBRL taxonomy, or specifications, for commercial-industrial businesses.

The draft, issued by the XBRL-US Domain Group and the American Institute of CPAs, can be viewed at http://www.xbrl.org/Taxonomy/us/TaxonomyFrameworkOverview.htm . The groups ask that CPAs review the draft and submit their comments by Nov. 29 to Rob Blake, XBRL-US Domain Group chairman, at robblake@microsoft.com, or the AICPA's XBRL point person, Jeff Naumann at jnaumann@aicpa.org .
