A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Guide for Internet Standards
Writers Working Group of the IETF.                                        

       Title     : Guide for Internet Standards Writers                    
       Author(s) : G. Scott
       Filename  : draft-ietf-stdguide-ops-00.txt
       Pages     : 11
       Date      : 08/16/1996

This document is a guide for Internet standard writers.  It defines those 
characteristics that make standards coherent, unambiguous, and easy to 
interpret.  Also, it singles out usage believed to have led to unclear 
specifications, resulting in non-interoperable interpretations in the past.

This version of the document is a draft. It's intended to generate further 
discussion and addition by the STDGUIDE working group. Please send comments
to stdguide@midnight.com or to the author.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-stdguide-ops-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@ietf.org

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
