Ballot Text

Technical Summary

  This document describes the properties and use of a revised Microsoft
  Word template (.dot) for writing Internet Drafts and RFCs. It updates
  the initial template described in RFC 3285 to more fully support
  Word's outline modes and to be easier to use. This template can be
  direct-printed and direct-viewed, where either is line-for-line
  identical with RFC Editor-compliant ASCII output. This version is
  intended as an update to RFC3285.

Working Group Summary
