Financial Reporting


The SEC invited mutual funds to join other registrants already voluntarily submitting their filings electronically in extensible business reporting language (XBRL) format ( www.sec.gov/spotlight/xbrl.htm ). The commission will assess registrants’ ability to properly tag their data in XBRL and will weigh the benefits of tagged data. Information on XBRL is available at www.xbrl.org .
