    • Audience
      Open Specifications documentation does not require the use of Microsoft programming tools or programming environments in order for you to develop an implementation. If you have access to Microsoft programming tools and environments, you are free to take advantage of them. Certain specifications are intended for use in conjunction with publicly available standard specifications and network programming art, and assume that the reader either is familiar with the aforementioned material or has immediate access to it.
