Textual information can be submitted in the form of an electronic record. However, there exists many word processing software, shareware and freeware in the market for different operating systems. While textual documents can be prepared using different types of word processing software, the document shall be saved for submission in one of the following formats -
  1. Plain text (TXT), which is a document format in which a sequence of characters and the words they form are encoded into computer-readable format using various types of language coding schemes. Most of the word processing software in the market allow users to save their document as plain text. Please note that when a document is saved as plain text, special effects such as font size, boldface, italics, underline, etc. will be lost.

    To do so, choose 'Save As' function and choose "Rich Text Format (RTF)" as the document type. Many word processing software not developed by the Microsoft Corporation also allow the saving of documents in RTF format. For the avoidance of doubt, documents in Microsoft Word format (with extension .doc) are not acceptable.
  3. Hypertext Mark Up Language Format (HTML, version 3.2 or 4). HTML is a document format promulgated by the World Wide Web Consortium for the content on web pages. Many word processing software in the market allow users to save their documents in HTML format. For the avoidance of doubt, documents with embedded Visual Basic code, Flash, Java scripts, or other embedded programming codes are not acceptable;
    or
  4. Adobe Portable Document Format (Acrobat version 3 or 4) promulgated by the Adobe Systems Incorporated. Tools can be used to convert textual documents into PDF format.

  1. Tag Image File Format (TIFF) promulgated by Adobe Systems Incorporated;
  2. Graphic Interchange File Format (GIF) promulgated by CompuServe Incorporated; or
