You can print them with Wordpad. It interprets both line breaks and FFs
fine.

FWIW, I also designed the updated Word template - in which I write I-Ds
and RFCs all the time. Windows has an ASCII "generic/text-only" printer
that I use for that process.

It is Apple doesn't have an equivalent of an ASCII printer driver.

Who's broken for ASCII again?
