MIL-STD-498, its 22 Data Item Descriptions (DIDs), the Application & Reference Guidebook, and the Overview & Tailoring Guidebook were converted to Adobe’s Portable Document Format to provide a machine-readable version of the standard to a broad community of users. For added value, the Bookmark and Link features of PDF were used to provide outline-oriented access and topic-oriented navigation for the standard and its DIDs.
