IEEE does not accept PostScript files, nor files created in desktop publishing software, such as InDesign.

Please use italic, sub- and superscript, and special characters as needed. Authors need not mimic the page layout of the target publication, nor should they include graphics within the document file (see the graphics requirements for magazines).
