Abstract

A method is described for use on a word processor to allow the user to flexibly place Header text, Body text, and Footer text on a page with only a simple interface -- specifying a Top Margin and Bottom Margin -- and maintain full compatibility with Revisable Form Text Document Content Architecture (RFTDCA). RFTDCA requires specifying a First Header Typing Line, First Text Typing Line, Last Text Typing Line, and First Footer Typing Line. DisplayWrite supports each of these parameters. Writing Assistant allows the user to specify only a Top Margin and Bottom Margin, while always placing the Header and Footer text on fixed lines. The new method allows the user to specify the page format as a Top Margin and Bottom Margin.
