There is also XBRL, which we have also discussed on this list before.

I am suggesting that we go for an XBRL-based system at the moment
simply because it would work for a lot of other (and indeed arbitrary)
financial reporting features to be included.

The XRBL GL Taxonomy information can be found at http://www.xbrl.org/GLTaxonomy/

Hi everyone,

A while back, I popped onto #ledgersmb about XML exchange support for
LedgerSMB. I think I talked with chrish about it, but I don't remember,
exactly. The result of that discussion was to use a native XML format
for POs, then add adapters to different formats as they are discovered.
This was because a good, widely-supported standard was not available.

However, just today, I found something called OFX, open financial
exchange. I have not researched this fully yet, however, GNUCash
supports this exchange format. I am not sure if this is something
specific to B2C type exchanges or if they have B2B type exchanges, yet.

Has anyone else heard of it? If so, what are your opinions about it?
