Government Printing Office Adopts Internal XML System
The Government Printing Office is adopting a new system that will manage and publish congressional bills and other publications entirely in a pared down and machine-readable XML format, the company providing the system announced Wednesday.
Publications that reach the public, such as congressional bills accessed through GPO’s Federal Digital System or the Library of Congress’ Thomas system, should look the same after the transition, agency officials said, though more of them likely will be available in XML in addition to other forms such as PDFs, officials said.
