Hi Rick,
Wow!  Thanks - I've been worrying about importing a word-wrapping
library into my MIB to MOF translator to "shorten" the DESCRIPTION
lines from the MIBs - all of my tools currently check for 80 columns 
and IETF and PWG standard MIBs are formatted to 72 columns.
Talk to you Thursday.
- Ira

There are rules that are handled by the pretty printer.  So I don't think
you need to worry about it too much.  Just make sure you follow some
indentation rule and don't go over 80 characters wide.  These two rules just
simply the review.

John, I have heard rumors that there are strict formatting rules for MOF
files.  Examples of rumor: no line shall be longer than 72 characters;
indenting shall be three blanks; no Description line shall be longer than 60
characters; etc.  We (PWG) are about to embark on a journey of many MOFs, so
I would like to avoid such mistakes. 

Are there written rules that I haven't found?  Unwritten rules?  A little
help, please.  Thanks.  Just trying to be kind to the editor.  :-)
