What is a “plain text” or ASCII document?

0

This is a file that contains only the text of the document, readable by most text editors and word processors. It is the native format of programs such as NotePad, SimpleText, etc. It may not contain graphics. Diacritics (e.g. é) are allowed, but may not display correctly on different operating systems. If your title page contains diacritics or other special characters, please convert them to the html-code equivalent based on the table at: http://www.w3c.org/TR/html40/sgml/entities.html#iso-88591. This will allow QBI’s catalogers to correctly determine what the character should be. Otherwise, HTML and other marked-up files are technically in ASCII format, but these are not considered plain text files for QBI’s purposes. You may, however, tag the text file as described in section 5.2.
