Actually, you shouldn't spec A36 WF's anymore, if they are coming from the
mills.  The mills have added a grade extra for A36.  What they produce today
is A992.  If you know the material is coming from a service center
(warehouse), then you may still find A36 that will be "duel cert", but it
should be phasing out soon.
