These rendering codes control, for example, the insertion of tabs, special attributes of the tabs, such as color, printing, etc, the type of binding the document is to have, the type of printing, the type of assembly, the downloading of material from other sources, the tailoring of portions of the document to the end user, etc. During the rendering process the rendering codes are used to insure that the finished product is rendered exactly as contemplated by the document creator even when the document is rendered without assistance from the creator and without the need for communicated directions outside of the created document.
