Gedcom 5.5 is a Standard used by different genealogy software vendors. PAF 3/4/5 use this standard too. However, Gedcom 4.0 was the standard used in PAF 2.1-2.3.1.
Then there is the character sets used, e.g. Ansi, Ansel, Unicode, and UTF8 Unicode. Most genealogical programs use Ansel, but the new PAF5 uses UTF8.
