Why are some iXBRL reports very slow, while others with similar levels of design open almost instantaneously? The answer largely lies not in the iXBRL itself, but the HTML – and our latest post suggests solutions for lightning-fast HTML with no compromise on visuals.
We now have well over 2,000 filings available at filings.xbrl.org, our index of Inline XBRL (iXBRL) reports made under the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) programme. The filings.xbrl.org site makes all filings available in an iXBRL viewer, which allows you to use the XBRL tags to navigate the document and even to understand disclosures made […]
