Adobe lobbies for standard

Adobe Systems Inc., San Jose, Calif., is talking with the National Archives and Records Administration about making its portable document format the archiving standard for file formats.

Representatives from Adobe and the National Archives have met and are in discussions, said John Cristofano, the company's public relations manager.

The National Archives is evaluating the possibility of using PDF as one of many electronic format standards for archiving purposes, he said.

Market research firm Input Inc., Chantilly, Va., estimates the federal document management market, which includes electronic records and archive management, may grow to nearly $2 billion annually by 2006, up from slightly more than $1 billion in 2001.
