For whatever reason, I'm running into problems downloading templates from the Office.com Templates. Some download, others don't (I get a typical canned error message to check if I'm connected to the internet, or whether my browser is working offline, or to try again later). This is normally a straightforward process: check out a template, like it, download it, use it.
What I'm after at the moment is a good Word 'technical report template' which includes outlined numbering (e.g. 1., 1.1, 1.1.1), and a clean set of styles (some templates include all sorts of useless, unused styles), ideally making use of fields (e.g. author, reviewer, doctitle, docnumber, docrevision) which could be used for subsequent programatic manipulation (e.g. scripts used to change or populate those fields in the documents).
Obviously I intend to customize this template.
I'd be applying it subsequently to hundreds of documents each with the same 'structure'.
We will later be uploading these docs to a SharePoint site accessed by a group of users.
