Subject: RE: [chairs] What can Standards Development / TC Administration do to help?

Hi Ken:
Sounds interesting.
Forgive me if this is covered elsewhere, but what is the authoring
environment for the TC spec editor? Put another way, is it something that
plugs in to existing tools (be it OpenOffice, Word, or other) or is it
another authoring tool to download and install (remembering that many of our
editors work on locked-down, corporate, systems)?
