Our premise is that a researcher should be able to use his or her time doing research, and not fighting with a test formatter. Modern formatters have macro capability. If the proper macros are written, the text formatting for all IEEE publications may be accomplished automatically. We propose that proponents of various text-processing systems write macro packages for their own systems. The scientific community would benefit greatly. One example is provided for users of the LAT EX2 ε system. It is available at http://www-isl.stanford.edu/ieee/ or at the ftp site ftp://isl.stanford.edu/pun/ieee/. A similar macro package is being developed for users of Microsoft Word, and can be found at the world-wide-web addresses given in the Conclusion.
