You get the idea. I was wondering what my peers call documents that
have been "released" but not officially approved.
Until my documents get officially approved I have "PRELIMINARY"
diagonally over the full height of every page in very light characters
(5% black). This stops nasty people manipulating the doc to pass it off
as the released version.
