RFC 3285 Using MS Word to create I-Ds and RFCs May 2002 1. Overview This document describes the steps to create a Microsoft Word 97 or later template to assist those producing Internet drafts. The resulting configuration allows for simple WYSIWYG editing of drafts and RFCs while producing output that is in accordance with IETF draft and RFC submission specifications. (72 Characters per line, 58 lines per page, each line terminated by a CRLF, and each page followed by a LF, etc.) Using Word's text justification and table capabilities may facilitate creating ASCII stick drawings. While the authors happen to have been employed by Microsoft during much of this document's evolution, it is not a product of Microsoft and is unsupported. Included is a detailed description of how the RFC Text and RFC Heading styles are defined. This should prove useful to those wishing to do further customization work or to create a similar template for other versions of Microsoft Word. It also includes a description and the source of the CRLF.EXE program
