Deep Dive into XBRL, Progression

In 1998 I created a prototypeof what was to become XBRL.  Since that time I have created more XML using my favorite application as I say, Microsoft Notepad (actually I prefer Ultra Edit), than I actually care to think about.  I still have a copy of that prototype.

There probably will not be many takers, but for those who like details, here is a deep dive into XBRL. I took the summary pages I worked with and organized them in one spot to make them easier to find. Here is that list:

  • Really Early Stuff (2000 to 2005). 2005-12-31
  • Early Stuff. 2007-01-01
  • XBRLS Era. 2008-04-15
  • Differences Between XBRL, RDF, XML, iXBRL, XHTML. 2010-01-15
  • Business Reporting Logical Model. 2010-08-01
  • Business Reporting Logical Model applied to SEC XBRL Financial Filings. 2010-09-30
  • Semantic Model on top of Business Reporting Logical Model. 2011-04-11

The end result of all this is summarized in the document Understanding SEC XBRL Financial Filings. There are two other summaries.  The FRUX book and XBRL for Dummies.
