E1508 was recently successfully balloted with changes to add references to silicon drift detectors. As a consequence of that ballot, various editorial and minor comments were received. Also received was a suggestion to add a qualitative analysis section to the standard guide. Inasmuch as the elements present must be identified before they can be quantified, the suggestion to add a qualitative analysis section seems warranted. I have added such a section and addressed many of the other comments in the attached new draft for discussion and ballot. Additions are in blue.
