0·0a Working Status (in-house) prior to release of the first draft.
• updated after minor increments to the document
• removed prior to submitting the documentation for review.
1 Revision Status (draft releases for review) piror to release of the final “approved” revision.
• starts at 1 (one)
• updated when the document is submitted for review
• differences between publication releases should be visible using revision marks
• set to 0 (zero) once the document is approved.
0·1 Separator (Alt+0183).
1·0 Approval Status.
• starts at 1 (one)
• updated to the next number just before obtaining approval so the final “approved” document is a whole number
• approved versions should not have revision marks.
