Cynthia,


thanks for the information.  I understand that you must be very busy right
now getting all the documents out before Munich.  Unfortunately, we will
need to give you newer versions of most of our documents one more time
before the July 30 deadline, but as some of them are still in their first
incarnation, we are  trying to get at least some feedback on the newer
documents before we send you the "final" ones towards the end of the month.  


Our biggest problem is to convert documents written in WinWord to the IETF
ASCII format which is a non-trivial task. We are actually just now working
on an informational RFC document, which describes the conversion process
from WinWord to IETF format step-by-step.  This might become one of your
most popular documents once it is finished!  I hope you realize that some
90 % of the world's desktops and portables have WinWord as an application,
and that only UNIX "hackers" can produce the IETF format with relative ease. 
Time for a rethink in the IETF?


Best regards,


Carl-Uno
