I am from an industry association in Australia that represent the majority
of companies involved in the printing and graphic arts industries.
I am currently in the process of developing electronic assistant.
The electronic assistant will have two parts:
1. An assistant to postscript production (final name to be decided)
2.A glossary of electronic publishing terminology as it relates to 1. above.
We will be interviewing
1. hardware suppliers
2. software suppliers
3. prepress houses, printers-the users of the prepress sytems
4. designers, advertising agencies and others.
We will ask each of these companies, their preferred way to constructing an
The glossary would explain the majority of terms contained in a) above.
The second idea is produce a pocket card which could be given to Sales Reps,
Advertising Agencies Designers and others that briefly explains the major

I've heard that a new CREF 2 document has been developed and is available
currently in the USA. So far, in Australia I have not been able to locate
the document or anyone who has access to the document.
I would appreciate anyone who has seen the document or knows where I could
access it, if they could mail me [log in to unmask] I would also
appreciate if anyone has any advice, comments or information that we could
include in our research for the project, if you could also forward it to me
at the e-mail address above or perhaps suggest a resource or
URL on the internet where I could find more information.
Any assistance that you could offer would be greatly appreciated and
information that contains intellectual property that you have created will
be acknowledged in the final document.
Thank you in advance
