I am going to write an application and send it to WIPO, because I want patent coverage in different countries, including United States.
I would like to discover what page layout my patent specification should have. As I see there are two main types of layouts:
- One column (very close to LaTeX
uspatentstyle layout) like this one: http://www.lens.org/images/patent/US/6067383/A/US_6067383_A.pdf
- Two column layout, like this one: http://www.lens.org/images/patent/WO/1998047290/A1/WO_1998_047290_A1.pdf
What layout should I prefer and where I may found detailed page layout and typography requirements for patent specification?
