SEC Considers Allowing Inline XBRL

Officials of the SEC have been making refrences to allowing the use of inLine XBRL for several months now. Inline XBRL effectively combines HTML and XBRL to create documents that look more like "regular" documents, easily readable by humans, while retaining the XBRL tags that can be used for consuming the data. It effectively allows the filers to file only one document rather than the two at present - the XBRL instance document and the readable document. See this article for more.
