Great questions Fabian, thanks for asking.

– Yes, our current plan is for the XML standard to be backward and forward compatible with the fixed-width format until the 2020 Volume II changes. However, from now until then is a transitional period where the NAACCR community should be updating software and processes to use XML so that the retirement of the fixed-width format in 2020 will not cause any problems.
