Comparing XBRL: What happened to Step 1?

If you read my last post, you might be wondering what happened to Step 1! Well Step 1 in comparing XBRL is about actually accessing the stuff in the first place in a way that enables you to do comparisons, which is what I've been droning on about in most of my previous posts and what XBRL to XL is all about.

So it would be a bit rubbish if you couldn't actually access all the data, like in XBRL to XL where you can't currently download quarterlies. So rubbish in fact it's time to change this. As from Monday quarterly data will be available and I will talk here about the issues of accessing quarterly data in XBRL and how we have combated them to maximise comparability and transparency.
