XBRL was a big enthusiasm of the prior SEC Chair, but I've not heard much about it recently until today. The SEC announces that its staff will conduct a public seminar next month to help companies and preparers comply with rules that require financial reports to be filed using eXtensible Business Reporting Language, (XBRL). The seminar will help answer frequently asked questions about the rules and technology requirements. The seminar will be held on March 23.
