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.
These guidelines are to be used with RFC 1543, "Instructions to RFC

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-stdguide-ops-04.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.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
