Section 2.4.2. says:

Install the "Generic/Text Only" printer, as found under "Generic" in
the available print drivers list.  Configure the printer to save to a
file or click 'save to file' when printing.  A printed file will have
a .prn file suffix.

It should say:

Install the "Generic/Text Only" printer, as found under "Generic" in
the available print drivers list.  Configure the printer to save to a
file or click 'save to file' when printing.  Configure the paper size
to be US Letter. A printed file will have a .prn file suffix.



Notes:

Adding the information about the required paper size configuration.
Using other paper sizes (e.g., A4) leads to pagination issues.

Notes:

Although we cannot use Errata Reports to update referenced URLs, I am leaving this report as "Held for Document Update" so that the information remains available for any future revision and also so that it is linked to the RFC and can be found by resourceful readers.

=====

This RFC describes Word templates which were at Joe Touch's ISI webpages. Those webpages are no more. There is a redirect to Joe's personal website at www.strayalpha.com as a hint and the current correct reference for the tools being maintained is presumably
https://www.strayalpha.com/tools/ but who knows how long that redirect will exist and how long those personal webpages will be there? An expired credit card could kill the domain and the resource.

https://web.archive.org/web/20171121144145/https://www.isi.edu/touch/tools/
has a copy of the original page referenced.

A copy of the template and tools probably needs to be hosted on an IETF-controlled server, with this erratum pointing at that IETF copy as canonical.

(Also, don' t add periods after urls to preserve grammar -just confuses everyone.)
