Hello prpro,

Thank you for your interesting question! One point that I would like
to make about my answer is that I have not included a single person
more than once, but many of them overlap. For instance, a great XBRL
analyst might have also served on committees and given speeches on the
subject, or a speaker might also serve as an analyst on the matter.
Anyway, here are some leading players that I've found in XBRL.

effectiveness practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. Contact: or (604) 806-7620."

" Upon leaving the IASC Foundation, Teresa worked in Brussels for
?XBRL in Europe? involved in XiE activities with special attention to
the XBRL Jurisdictions development in Southern Europe. She is the XiE
Coordinator for the setting up of XBRL - Italy  jurisdiction.


At XiE she significantly contributed to XBRL papers, writing articles,
consultation papers to the European Commission, giving presentations 
and helping in the organisation of the European XBRL public events."
