Templates (.dot) are identical to Word (.doc) files but all of

the formatting in them applies to the current document. In Word, if

you create a New file and use the default then it has the

normal.dot file formats. Some templates have Visual Basic macros to

help you fill out the document e.g. your company name in a fax

template.
