Subject: FW: Guidelines on Conformance Clauses

Here are two documents intended to provide guidance on the Conformance
Section now required.

If your time is limited, the second one (.doc format) provides the more
specific advice on what is needed.

Hi Drummond,

  I'm attaching a draft of some guidelines that are currently in the
works as well as a document produced by a the
Conformance TC. 

  The Conformance Section should be a new section placed as the last
section in the document (before any appendices).

  Let me know if you have more questions.

All the best,

> "A specification that is approved by the TC at the Public Review
