Of course many documents created in the modern office start out as an electronic file and many never see physical paper. Popular electronic file formats include:
▲ .pdf - Adobe portable document format.
▲ .xml - extensible Markup Language; a standard for creating markup languages which describe the structure of data.
Documents can also arrive at the organization as e-mail attachments or through a network fax server. The system should support forwarding these documents electronically rather than having to print them before distribution.
