File formats

The |PDF| files generally include the formatting and pagination that appears in the paper copy of the MPEP.

The |HTML| files are small, cross-linked text documents that facilitate locating information in the MPEP quickly and navigating between various parts of the MPEP treating similar subject matter. The HTML files are known to contain some artifacts of file conversion from the source format, and the paper copy of the MPEP should be consulted if a question arises regarding the content of any part of the MPEP located using these files.

The |Accessible PDF| files are very large files. They are recommended if you are using a screen reading program designed to read text aloud to someone who is blind or visually impaired.
