Greetings George,

What you are asking here is silly.

There is absolutely no barking way that you can look at a document, any
document, and have any fiddly idea what product was used to create it, or
what platform the product was running on.

Was the document created in Interleaf 5 or 6 running on a Mac or UNIX?

Was it created using FrameMaker on Windows NT or Mac?

Was it created using WILBER running on a AS400?

If you are really looking for style sheets and different layout
techniques, say so.

This is not a flame, just a light smack to the side of the head.
