We define multi-document PDL and Multi-Set PDL. Unfortunately we don't provide normative mapping for the common PDL types.
<instruction make the description of RunList unconditional based on 2.x>
A RunList defines one or more printable logical documents or document sets that MAY be defined in one or more external physical
PDL or image files. It retains the properties of the original documents (e.g., the pages of a set of documents with
ordered pages that is described by a RunList are ordered).
RunList allows structuring of multiple Pages into Documents. Multiple Documents that have a joint context MAY be grouped into Sets.
The following table provides a mapping of Pages, Documents and Sets for common PDL types.
Table 7-X Pages, Documents and Sets for common PDL types
|Postscript||-||-||PoostScript is a single document PDL.|
|Page in pages tree||-||-||Regular PDF including PDF/X is a single document PDL.|
|PDF/VT||Page in pages tree||Any DPart Descendant below the Set||Any DPart record as defined by RecordLevel||a Record as defined by RecordLevel SHALL be mapped to a Set.|
|PPML||PAGE elements||DOCUMENT elements||DOCUMENT_SET/JOB elements|
