    2. The markdown 1. must start on and be followed by spaces until the next tab stop.
  6. Non-normative text (statements that cannot be tested) must be marked down with emphasis or in non-numbered paragraphs following the specification.
  7. The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.

In Vim, use :set tw=72 or textwidth=72 to configure automatic physical wrapping at the 72nd column. Select a region and type gq to reflow a paragraph or bullet point. Use ts=4 and sw=4 (tabstop=4 and shiftwidth=4) to align text at tab stops.
