Convert nested files into PDF/A-2 with no intermediate steps

Here the use of the PDF/A-2’s property itself is essential for it to be a container for other PDF/A files.

Instead, recommendations were marked as obligatory and ambiguities from limitations clarified, e.g. transparent objects were forbidden.

Structured PDF in Technical Documentation

by Dr. Uwe Wächter

PDF is the central data format when dealing with digital documents.
