A number of additional sections of the Edgar and Global Filer manuals are now being tested, mostly in the semantics tests area. Some of these can be considered experimental, and filtered out of results, because they’re in early use (such as detection of missing calculation relationships). Severity levels for semantics tests are uniquely identified as semantic (in XML and Json logger output).

Two plug-in’s provide SEC Non-negatives testing and Best Practices testing. These need to be activated by the manage plug-in’s dialog (in the help menu or via the command line/web service interfaces). Best practices work continues (with members of the US-GAAP Best Practices Working Group).

For support on the semantic and best practices features please use e-mail to support@markv.com or http://arelle.atlassian.net. Arelle will be at the XBRL-US Austin meeting for further discussions.

    Hi Herm! Very glad to hear that you’ll be in Austin. Alex and I are really looking forward to catching up with you.

    PS – The post is very useful as well. I’ll talk to you about more in person!
