IETF Author Tools

This service allows you to convert an Internet-Draft from one format into another, including rendered outputs. In the background this service uses id2xml, kramdown-rfc, mmark and xml2rfc, chaining them together as needed to deliver the requested conversion.
The input must be a valid Internet-Draft in one of the following formats:

  • XML as .xml (automatically recognises v3 as defined in RFC 7991 and v2 as defined in RFC 7749)
  • Markdown as .md or .mkd (kramdown-rfc and mmark dialects are supported)
  • Plain text as .txt
