I find that the Markdown flavor of the BRs is useful for this sort of thing.

>   I'd like to address a formatting issue I've run into several times while

> copying+pasting from the document.
>   In the Baseline Requirements PDF document, unnecessary whitespace such
> as a tab character is introduced such that a couple of problems arise:
> 1) Searching for certain terms within the document becomes extremely
> difficult and tedious. For example, I was searching for the exact verbiage
> around an "Internal Name" and I typed "Internal" into the search box which
> yielded 25 results. Appending a space character narrowed the results down
> to 8, yet none of them were Internal Name. Appending an "N" reduced the
> results to zero. Only after manually scrolling to the definitions and
> hunting down the line for Internal Name did I copy and paste it into the
> search field to see what was happening. If one searches for "Internal Name"
> (there's two tab characters between the words there) results in only the
> one instance of this in the definitions section but it doesn't find the
> instance within the doc that makes use of the term. To find that, one has
> to search for "Internal Name" (only one tab between the words this time),
> which produces the results I was initially seeking.
> 2) Copying and pasting to quote verbiage becomes a formatting nightmare
> too. For example, when copying and pasting the text from section,
> one gets this (no modification on my part): "*f. extKeyUsage (required) *
> *Either the value id‐kp‐serverAuth [RFC5280] or id‐kp‐clientAuth [RFC5280]
> or both values MUST be present. *
> *id‐kp‐emailProtection [RFC5280] MAY be present. Other values SHOULD NOT
> be present. *"
> This snippet contains 25 tab characters (!) which, needless to say, makes
> beautifying this text an exercise in tedium when conveying it outside of
> its original PDF format.
> Anyway, I'm not sure it needs to take up any time on the call, but it's an
> administrative item that I feel needs addressing somehow.
